  • Pair and group work
  • Creative activities for visual and kinaesthetic learners
  • Appealing tasks based on modern media
  • Quiz questions

Carefully considered structure develops understanding:

  1. Build a foundation for learning and get students interested
    with introductory pre-reading exercises.
  2. Dig deeper with text-based activities. Every key event is
    explored through a range of thought-provoking tasks.
  3. Consolidate knowledge with whole-text activities focusing on:
    Characterisation • Relationships • Setting
    • Themes • Ideas and Messages • Language

All activities are perfectly matched to the GCSE Assessment
Objectives, and the fantastic structure makes the pack accessible
for your whole class – differentiation is built in.

An ideal complement to the Study Guide for this text.

activities included.

This is yet another excellent resource from this author… Assessment Objectives are clearly linked to each task. The worksheets are student friendly; tables are used for character analysis tasks and appropriate illustrations are used to engage students… Comparisons to other novels are used including the extract from Wilde. There are comprehensive links to Great Depression, racism and the American dream. Guidance is given on how to use the PEE structure… there are brilliant speaking and listening group tasks which could easily be used for assessments. All these aspects make this pack an essential purchase for any English department… The presentation and layout are both really student friendly… this resource is brilliant… Thanks again – this author has produced yet another fantastic resource. I will find it most useful! &ndash J Sharrock, English Teacher & Peer Reviewer (1st edition)
