A Kestrel For A Knave

Discussion in 'English' started by sisterlou, Jan 17, 2012.

  1. Is anyone teaching this text? Or would anyone like to teach this text?
    I have started at a new school as HOD and we have loads of these books - brand new and with DVD but have no intention of teaching the novel. Happy to do a good deal - cheap or swaps - get in touch.
  2. Before you dismiss it...it's a good year 9 text now it's not on the Lit GCSE spec. We now essentially have based our year 9 on the legacy AQA spec, so that it preps the kids as much as possible for GCSE - and they really enjoy Kes and get a lot out of it, and it's a bit more meaty than a lot of year 9 reading fodder.

    I remember doing this in English in 1973. The HT even gave an assembly on it. He prattled on about Kes caring for a bird and Kes having a bad time at home and at school. If that HT had actually read the book, he might not have made such a fool of himself.
  4. Lol, take it you don't want a 100 or so copies then!
