Y9 art as a medium for aiding literary analysis.

gradgrind images

I love these – a selection of my year 9 class’ responses to Dickens. To me, it is evident that creative work such as this adds to the understanding of the texts. Could they have devised these (and in cases “devised” is the only word suitable) if they hadn’t got the text? A lesson on SCASI analysis ended with the oinstruction to present Gradgrind artwork prepared as home learning.

Pretty spot on really!

Feel free to use as you wish!

Any specific comments will be passed back to the students concerned – I’d love some feedback.
