This is a full, 21-lesson scheme of work aimed at Y8/9 students. It is accompanied by an anthology of extracts that tie in with the lessons.
It starts with a definition of 'romanticism', before moving on to the five basic human fears and looking at Gothic films, stories and poetry whilst looking at how each is tailored to play on those fears.
There are lots of literature activities to prepare students for GCSE literature essay writing. Lessons focus on how to structure essays using a reading ladder and box plan, in addition to creative writing using different techniques.
Attached is a complete short-term plan, outlining how all the lessons progress to a final assessed piece. DIRT marking is included at standard every few lessons.
The lessons rely on YouTube links so please don't waste your cash if you can't access YouTube/don't know how to convert.
A couple of lessons look at The Weeping Angels in Dr Who; you'll need a copy of the episode 'Blink' (it's available on Netflix and DVD).
It's a really great starter to Gothic, especially if you're thinking about teaching Jekyll and Hyde or The Woman in Black at GCSE.
I'm really proud of this scheme as I've made it to focus on the real 'meat' of Gothic - the deep-seated 'creepiness' of the stories, as opposed to just teaching it as 'horror plus romance'.
I hope you like it.
