Over the past few years, I’ve put out various different Jekyll and Hyde resources on Twitter – some have aged reasonably well, and others less so. I’ve searched through my Dropbox folder and picked out five that I still regularly use. Take a look below…
1. Lecture resources – click here.
Last year, I gave a lecture on the presentation of Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde to students in year 11. I’ve included the slides, but the two booklets are probably the most useful resource – they contain quiz questions, extracts from the novel, key words, and a sample exam question.
2. Context booklet – click here
I put this together last year. It’s a booklet that contains extracts from a wide range of texts – from Frankenstein to The Origin of Species. There’s also a timeline of key events spanning from 1818 to 1897.
3. Characterisation overview – click here
A one-page overview for students that contains what I call the ‘fundamentals’ on the three main characters – Jekyll, Hyde, and Utterson. Useful for revision or as the basis for questioning and discussion.
4. Revision extracts – click here
A selection of extracts from the novel and also banks of key words. When I used the resource earlier in the term, I squished the first two pages together to form a single A3 sheet and then did the same with the final two pages.
5. Two exam tasks and feedback sheets – click here
Two exam tasks that I put together fairly recently. The first is on chapter two and the second is on chapter seven. Should be pretty easy to adapt.
I hope the resources are useful. Feedback welcome!
