Today I spent an hour clearing out my year 12 resources box. I only have one year left of teaching The Turn of the Screw, On Chesil Beach and A Streetcar Named Desire – I’m not happy the specs are changing. These 3 texts have grown on me.
During my tidying, I realised just how much of a visual learner I am. As the texts we study are not popular A level texts I find myself making a lot of resources. It seems my approach has been pretty visual. For someone who got a D at GCSE Art, I’m pretty pleased with some of these.
Now that I look at it, many of the activities I have done in response to texts this year do seem to have a visual theme.
