Curriculum support15 mins£3

Sarah LeesHost: Sarah is an English teacher at a Grammar school in South East London. She studied English and American Literature at the University of Kent and trained for her PGCE at UCL six years ago. She also teaches Film Studies at A level.

Authors use many different techniques to create imagery in their writing.

In this class, students will study A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and will learn techniques which can be applied to a variety of other texts.

They will explore the imagery used by Dickens to describe Scrooge, and then analyse the literary techniques employed as well as the effect they create for the audience. They will also get the opportunity to create their own! 

This is a great class for students covering the text in their studies but also those who are looking for examples of wider reading to which they can apply their knowledge.
