Curriculum support15 minsFREE

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 look at A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and explore the imagery used to describe Scrooge as well as analyse the literary techniques employed and the effect on the audience. Students will also be given the opportunity to apply what they learned to make their own examples. This is a great class for students covering the text in their studies or those who want to further understand imagery and language.
