Jane Eyre – Teaching Resource Pack
• US Edition
Designed for the classroom, this resource book (spiral bound for easy photocopying) contains activities and exercises to help the teaching of Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre.
First published in 1847, Jane Eyre is considered one of the great romances of all time. Now students can appreciate the story in a new way while honing their analytical skills. This teaching guide contains a variety of activities and exercises based on illustrated scenes from the novel.
Although it was designed to be used alongside the Classical Comics graphic novels, it can be used with any version of the book.
The exercises have been approached from a cross-curriculum perspective so that they cover not only literature and literacy, but also history, technology, drama, reading, speaking, writing and art. Students learn about the author’s background, her literary family, and the place of women in Victorian England, and they address such questions as whether Jane Eyre is a successful heroine and how to re-plot the novel for a Hollywood adaptation.
The age range is 10 to 17 (Grade 5 and up), but of course within that span exists a broad spectrum of skill levels. Therefore, this study guide includes activities for all, providing many opportunities for differentiated teaching and for the tailoring of lessons to meet individual needs.
Examples of some of the activities include:
A CD is included that contains the pages in PDF format so that they can be used on any whiteboard or local intranet system.
