Product Description
A zip file jammed packed with resources ready to go. A good 2 - 3 weeks worth of work at least.

The folder includes:

1. A Collection of Thoughts
Four different literary contexts for students to explore and apply to the text.

2. Elements of Modernism
Students explore the four aspects of modernism by applying and justifying certain quotes to each one.

3. Essay Questions
A set of questions to challenge student understanding of the text.

4. Paradox: Madness and Sanity
A writing guide to help students with their understanding of how Theodora develops throughout the text. Would make a good starting point for a class discussion on how the author crafts each point in the novel and what literary context he applies.

5. Ranking Theodora's Mind
A task in which students decide how much impact other characters have in the novel over Theodora's state of mind, or how she uses them as an excuse to slowly withdraw.

6. Theodora and Epigraphs
Examine all three epigraphs in the novel and decide to what extent they foreshadow events to come. Students also analyse them in terms of how they contribute to key ideas.

7. Rose Imagery
An exploration of where and when roses appear in the novel and the significance they carry.

8. Colour Imagey
White's descriptions are vivid and lush with colour. He uses colour to associate with characters, themes, issues and a deepened understanding of their nature. Students assign certain colours to different characters and explain their decisions in this useful grid.

9. Language
Students explore how the third person omniscient narrator, a feature of 19th Century Realism, has been used in this novel.
