  1. Hi.
    I am hoping to create a scheme of work based around vampires, using extracts from modern texts as well as classical to try and teach description and atmospheric writing.
    I am a little worried the topic would be considered too morbid however (although obviously I wouldn't do anything really dark) I don't want to offend any religious parents or cause any upset in general. I was tentatively thinking for year 9, by the way.
    Any views? [​IMG]

    We do Gothic in Yr 9 without any problems.
  3. Thank you, gruoch [​IMG] I'll upload it to the resources when it's completed so other people can use it if they'd like to.
  4. Sounds good. They all start reading Twilight about that age anyway.
  5. Yes - trying to charm year 9 girls - I'll let you know if it works (I doubt it, but worth a shot!)
