Y11 English PREP: Week 5

Hi everyone, it’s late, but here is this week’s PREP;
1.Work on your checklist, this is your responsibility to work through and complete the tasks that you think will help.
2.Look through the blogroll and the ‘workshops’ page to find assorted attached documents to help you.
3.If possible, watch the film, as it will help you understand the basics of the text and give you something to compare your knowledge with, because all of us know that Baz’s interpretation is a bit different to the actual text of the play.
4.Come to Tuesday’s lunchtime class, or email me, if you need a hand with anything or would like some feedback on a task that you have done.

Have a great weekend,

EDMOB out.
