Teaching expert Phil Beadle guides a Year 10 English class through Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, in this CPD resource full of lesson ideas.
Phil, a former Teaching Awards teacher of the year, brings the classic novel, Great Expectations, to life using actors to recreate scences and drawing on comparisons with life today.
He encourages the class to consider why anyone would want to read 440 pages of small print, written a century ago.
The drama of the text plays out before the students as the classic literary characters, Pip and Miss Havisham, are recreated.
