Kitan CoxHost: As an experienced secondary English teacher, I have taught GCSE and A-Level English (Language and Literature), Media Studies, Extended Project Qualification, Critical Thinking and Drama in a wide range of educational settings in London and Surrey (outstanding secondary schools, academies and a further education college). I am also been involved in motivating students through extracurricular activities inside and outside of school. Additionally, I have a certificate in Life Coaching.

A dystopian society is one that has great suffering or injustice. In this class students will get an overview of how to analyse a dystopian science fiction novel using an extra from ‘The Mazerunner’. Students will be shown how to identify language features, how to comment on the effects of language and how to embed and explain quotations. This class is aimed at students in Years 7 and 8 as this class teaches skills that are essential when unwrapping unseen text.
