A wider selection of texts

3 Oct

I have previously written about a proposed Year 10 Crimes Fiction unit.  The more I think about this unit, the more things I want to add to it.

For example, I would like to show students Roald Dahl’s famous short story ‘Lamb to the Slaughter’, and maybe even Robert Browning’s poems ‘Porphyria’s Lover’ and ‘The Laboratory’.  I think accessing and analysing these texts will help students to develop a fuller and deeper understanding of the conventions of the Crime Fiction genre and how these conventions can be demonstrated in a range of different textual forms.  Furthermore, exploration of Browning’s poems in particular will provide a reality check for some of my students who are planning on pursuing higher levels of English in Year 11.
