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.

  • To engage in pre-reading exercises so to get you excited.
  • To introduce and promote reflective response reading journals.
  • To introduce a new text one part at a time.

A Doll’s House

Write down three words which come to mind when

you read this title.


Prop Box

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.


The reflective response reading journal

Homework journals -‘Get RRR Journal’.

Whatever size or colour you want is fine.

  • Rules (Write these down)
  • No one may read another persons journal without their permission (not even the teacher).
  • No one can force anyone to write something particular in their journal (not even the teacher).
  • No one shall be forced to tell the class what they wrote.
  • Time given to writing in the journal during class is sacred and is to be treated with the utmost respect.
  • Sign your name then
