This engaging and informative lesson enables students to make sustained and insightful interpretations of the final chapter of ‘Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.’ In particular, students interpret and analyse the key events of Dr Jekyll’s closing statement, using relevant supporting textual evidence.
The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which children learn through:
- Establishing the sequence of events leading up to Jekyll's statement;
- Reading and comprehending the final chapter;
- Securing understanding of the chapter through a fun, interactive quiz;
- Creating a storyboard of the events to demonstrate their understanding of plot;
- Analysing the key events of the chapter, using appropriate textual evidence;
- Peer assessing each other's learning attempts.
- Whole lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive;
- Extract from the final chapter;
- Cards for card-sorting activity;
- Storyboard for the development task;
- Analysis template with success criteria for creating well-structured responses;
- Comprehensive lesson plan.
There are also opportunities for group learning, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. These resources were originally taught to GCSE students, but with subtle adaptations they have also been used with KS3 and A Level Students.
