The Handmaid’s Tale – Class Presentations

Hello folks,

Below are the tutorial presentations each of you delivered for the class last week. Overall, I was very impressed with both your knowledge of the text, and your ability to tackle what were often fairly complex questions.

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!

Prose Fiction Selection

Hello folks,

Just a reminder that, after today’s vote, the prose genre that won was FEMINIST. These are the texts that we will be studying:

  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  • The Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter
  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

You should have read all three by the time we come back after the holidays.
