In this is unit pupils are immersed in the context of 1912, with events such as the Titanic symbolising the fragmented class structure, and that of the writer, 1945, in which the same rigid class system is clinging to its former glory amidst the chaos of the second world war. Using kinaesthetic activities and a series of iconic video clips pupils will grasp the core elements of the contexts underpinning An Inspector Calls.
Additionally, exploration of key concepts such as such as capitalism and socialism, and their relevance with regards to the writer's purpose and messages. is also covered in depth.
