Re-read your extract from Act One. Write an A4 side response to answer the question: What do we learn about Arthur Birling in this extract?
Answers must include any information we learn about Birling: facts about his life, family, role in society etc.
Answers should refer to stage directions and interpret what they tell us about his character.
Answers could use an understanding of the context of the play to inform interpretations, deducing and inferring ideas about Birling’s character that are implied rather than explicitly shown.
