Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’ was of course adapted by Francis Ford Coppola into the iconic ‘Apocalypse Now’, often leaving this landmark text sometimes ignored. This chilling work (ahead of its time) questions the hollowness of civilisation and the truly barbaric nature of the British Empire’s campaign of colonialism. This framed novel contains three parts, split down into subsections for study.
This power point lesson focuses on Part 2 with 3 individual lessons. Each presentation contains a starter activity, a glossary of terms, summary and analysis questions, an academic writing task, an extension task, a homework assignment and a plenary. All slides are beautifully illustrated and very engaging for the students. I have taught this text for the last five years and I have used this resource to lead my teaching in class, as a distance learning material and as a tool of revision. This is a complete resource that has completed all of the difficult work for teachers. Enjoy!
