HG Wells’ classic text about war and invasion resonates strongly today and therefore makes this novel extremely engaging read. This power point lesson explores the meaning of Book 1 chapters 1 and 2 through structured tasks, discussion and academic writing. All slides are beautifully illustrated to support the colour of Wells’ writing and very engaging for the students.
This presentation contains a starter activity, a recap on previous learning, summary and analysis questions, an academic writing task, an extension task, a homework and a plenary. I have successfully used this resource in class to lead my teaching, as a homework assignment and even as a tool of revision. Enjoy!
