Heading – Comparative Text
People have more freedom to do
what they want than they did
one or two hundred years ago.
Spend three minutes writing
your reaction to this statement.
A Doll’s House
Write down three words which come to mind when
you read this title.
Before you are an assortment of items linked to the story.
In groups decide on the kind
of characters to whom these belong.
Be specific – likely characters,
likely kind of story etc.
Spend 4 MINUTES examining the objects, discussing ideas and 4 minutes writing them down. Someone from each group shall then talk about what they deduced (so have something written everyone – bulletpoints).
Using the warm-up exercise, the title, the props and these covers, spend two minutes writing the most detailed prediction you can?
A picture is supposed to tell a thousand words. What do these pictures reveal about the story. Reference at least 3 covers in your answer.
The comparative text is all about what you think or believe.
Questions will look like this:
What aspects of the setting did you find interesting?
How did that relationship capture your interest?
What made the main character interesting?
What did you learn? (Theme)
As we go through the text, we’ll explain things and discuss stuff. The questions I give will highlight aspects of the characters, settings or themes. That’s not going to be as effective as Plan ‘A’ though.
