The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde brings an element of fun and informality to the study of GCSE texts, repackaging large amounts of complex information in an engaging and simple manner.
Studying the sheets doesn't seem like reading or working, yet having these graphic sheets helps students immensely in understanding and sequencing the plot, remembering key events, distinguishing between characters and understanding characters' perspectives.
Although initially designed to help and support SEN students, testing in the classroom has showed that students at all levels wanted copies of the graphic sheets and benefited from using them.
Many students find it difficult to remember what happened in a book and in what order, let alone to write a timed essay picking apart the intricacies of it. With these Graphic Revision Guide books, students will gain confidence in their knowledge before jumping into the deep end.
The book contains:
Visual summaries of the plot
Character profiles, including a fact file and quotes from the book
Exploration of key themes and the context for the book
Additional graphic reference material, to help students understand the setting of the book
Activity sheets, including matching quotes to pictures, vocabulary building and drawing character maps.
The resources are printed in black and white for easy photocopying and enlarging.
