A presentation to our German partners on how technology has transformed our work in English at the London Nautical School
In The Crysalids, John Wyndham created a fictional world that expressed the contemporary anxiety about the nuclear threat posed by the Cold War arms race. Told from the point of view of a naive narrator, David, The Crysalids explores the post-apocalyptic landscape of strict religion, civil conflict and extraordinary genetic mutation.
This task supports students to work together to create their own future dystopia, replicating some of the key features of Wyndham’s “The Crysalids”, while updating it to represent a future where our current world has veered off course and the main character is dealing with the consequences.
As part of the introduction to our Year 8 Macbeth Study, we’re looking, in acute detail, at some small excerpts from the main play.
Before we start reading. Before we know the plot. We’re putting the microscope on the language of shakespeare and what this might reveal. My proposition with this presentation is that Shakespeare has Macbeth use personification in this extract to reveal the extent to which Macbeth is blaming external forces for the choices he is about to make.
