These days, if you’re a teacher, you’re likely used to time pressure when preparing your classes. As part of the CLiC project we have been working on a number of free resources for you, hoping they will save you some time. In this post we ask for your feedback to ensure the resources we create are as valuable for your work as possible.
Our classroom activities focus on teaching the 19th-century novel at Key Stage 3 onwards. They make use of the CLiC web app – a free tool that we developed. CLiC doesn’t require any registration/login and lets you and your students search and analyse the language of 19th century fiction.
You can download the following free resources for stand-alone classroom activities in PDF and Word format:
- “Character and structure in A Christmas Carol” (PDF: 311 KB) ( .docx: 3 MB)
- Exploring theme in The Sign of the Four (PDF: 444 KB) (.docx: 3 MB)
- “Education, women and governesses in the 19th century” (PDF: 498 KB) ( .docx: 3.8 MB)
You can also find these and activities bundled in our free Activity Book .
What do you think about these activities? What are your views on the format of the activities? Do you have specific requests for more material? Please let us know in the comments, via email or via Twitter how we can improve our resources and make them work for you!
