The Handmaid’s Tale – Critical Reading

Hello folks,

A few articles I would like to you to read and take notes on as part of today and tomorrow’s lesson.

I’d also like you to, in groups, come up with THREE discussion questions regarding the articles that the class will tackle tomorrow.

The Handmaid’s Tale Tutorial Sessions

Hello folks,

As discussed, after the holidays, each of you will lead a tutorial style mini lesson, lasting approximately twenty minutes, and based on The Handmaid’s Tale.

Everyone has now selected a topic question, and you should be working on this at home as part of your prelim revision. These sessions should ALL be ready to go by the first week back, Monday 9th January. Remember that is also the day your first draft of your dissertations is due in, so ensure you are balancing your workload.

Task instructions and topic questions are below. Any questions, just let me know!

Folio Internal Assessment

Okay folks, so for this you need to bring three things:

  • A first draft of a folio piece
  • A copy of that where you have reflected on your work and taken reasonably detailed notes on how to improve – this can be handwritten notes, like the image below, or be written in the Comments option in Word (in the Review tab at the top)
  • A second draft where you have edited and improved the piece, based on your own reflections.

This is due Thursday 15th December.
