A Level Literature: (18) Othello Vs Gatsby – Tragic Heroes

These complex and challenging texts remain as controversial in the post-modern world as they did at the time of publication. I have taught these texts a number of times and have refined this resource at the close of every academic year. I have successfully used this resource to lead my teaching in the classroom, as a homework or distance learning material and even as a tool of revision – all have worked well for the students.

This colossal twenty-two slide presentation provides the appropriate detail and exploration required at A level, and is suitable with slight adaptions for IB and the American system. This presentation commences with an exploration into the meaning and interpretation f the term, ‘Tragic Hero’, with structured writing tasks, discussion and mini research tasks – bringing awareness to how the definition functions. This exploration scaffolds a more informed analysis of Gatsby and Othello as constructs, and this is once again taught through a series of structured tasks. Every slide is dynamically illustrated and very engaging. This presentation also contains an extension task and homework assignment. There is no work for you to complete whatsoever. This is a complete resource. Enjoy.

I am a frontline teacher with 12 years state school experience from inner London schools, and a further 8 years experience teaching internationally in Mexico and Spain. I am now a self-employed English tutor and pretty much a full-time Resource Author. This working life choice allows me to take care of my beautiful American wife and step-daughter, along with my own daughter from a previous relationship - we are a happy disfunctional, yet very loving, little family unit.
