This Graphic Revision Guide for Great Expectations is an essential tool for anyone studying this book for GCSE English Literature. It contains comic-style sheets, especially tailored to strengthen the student’s understanding of plot, characters, quotes, themes and more; through using them, learning and revising this iconic novel will become an easier and more enjoyable experience. Students with special educational needs (SEN) will find it particularly beneficial.
This book contains:
- Visual summaries of the plot
- Character profiles, including a fact file and quotes from the book
- Exploration of key themes and the context for the book
- Additional graphic reference material, to help students understand the setting of the book
- Activity sheets, including matching quotes to pictures, vocabulary building and drawing character maps.
The resources are printed in black and white for easy photocopying and enlarging.
Although initially designed to help and support SEN students, trials found that all the students in the class wanted copies of the graphic sheets and benefited from using them. Many students find it difficult to remember what happened in a book and in what order, let alone write a timed essay picking apart the intricacies of it. With this book, students will gain confidence in their knowledge before jumping in at the deep end.
How does Pip help the escaped convict? How does Pip meet Estella? Who is Pip’s rich benefactor?
After completing these sheets your students will have these answers at their fingertips.
