English from a London perspective

Discussion in 'English' started by Stacy191, Apr 10, 2012.

  1. I want to teach my KS3 class about English through a London context - can anyone point me in the direction of useful teaching materials?

    Very vague post. Are you looking for novels set in London? If so when? Contemporary/ Lit heritage? Multi-cultural?
     
  3. Some of the Songs of Innocence/Experience - Blake have a focus on London. Lots of Dickens is set in LondonUse extracts from Peter Ackroyd's 'London: the Biography' for some non-fiction workUse leaflets from London attractions if you want to look at persuasive techniques Media work could focus on London Underground advertising - some really good stuff from the 1930s that could spark discussion and creative media based responsesI hope that gives you some ideas.
     
  4. I guess all three. My aim is to get students to understand/think about London and how it has changed.
     
  5. Really helpful. Particularly love the London Underground idea.
