The Learning Grid Challenge!
An interesting Home Learning, that’ll challenge you to think outside the box, forming connections from your understanding of the play.
Click on this Learning Grid:
For you HL: Go to the link at the end of this paragraph, to role your 6-faced die (one ‘die’, two ‘dice’, did you know that?), first moving down by that number. Then role it again, and then move to that number across. Click for the: Dice Rolling Site
For example, if you first roll a 3 then a 6, you would have landed on the image of
a man and woman. Your first task is to explain the relevance (why it’s important) of that image (or word/s) to Act One of An Inspector Calls.
Next, you should repeat the process and then explain any links between the two cells. So, for example, if you next roll a 5 then a 4, you would explain how men and women connect with Mr Birling. In this case, you might comment:
Mr Birling seems to have rather traditional values about men and women; he’s clearly a man who believes in the family name and reputation being made by the ‘alpha male’ (strongest male) of the household, and treats the ‘girls’ he employs as second class citizens.
For your HL, complete three rolls and make three short paragraph comments.
If you’re feeling lucky, try 5 rolls! (I’ll give you a HL positive).
