    Does anyone have any ideas regarding texts to compare An Inspector Calls to?

    Thank you in advance.

    What's the criteria?

    comparing an extract from An Inspector Calls and an unseen modern extract with similar themes -
    analysing how the writers use language, form and structure to create effects and impact.

    Having a quick look at the spec, it lists the following under 'conflict' - isn't that a starting point?

    Animal Farm or An Inspector Calls
    The War of the Worlds or The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

    And there are actually resources provided in the spec (as links). Find this section and access the examples:
    Comparing Drama Texts: Conflict - An Inspector Calls / Little Voice / The History Boys Using Learner Resource 3, ask students to compare an extract from J. B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls with an extract from Jim Cartwright’s The Rise and Fall of Little Voice. Students can now apply their comparative skills to a third (unseen) text, which also shows conflict between generations. Learner Resource 4 asks them to compare an extract from Alan Bennett’s The History Boys with the extract from An Inspector Calls.

    That's pretty lame for a textbook. Keep an eye on ZigZag publishing or consider requesting the resource - they respond to teachers' needs if there's enough demand.

    I agree - it is difficult to find resources for this.
