Gothic Fiction

year9books

We are currently studying a scheme of learning on Gothic Fiction in Year 9. The set books for this scheme are The Woman in Black by Susan Hill or The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.

This particular scheme is fun to teach as students usually like the theme but it does involve you reading advanced texts which are a challenge for even the most able readers. With the changes to the GCSE, it is crucial that you experience reading texts from an earlier time period. The inclusion of pre-1900s fiction and non-fiction in the new exam means you will need to be used to reading these kinds of texts and we want to give you the best preparation for the new exams.
