Essential Mini Lessons - Set 12 - Psychology in Literature


Tour this resource here.

Note: This set is now available in a discounted bundle of sets 11-20, available here.


This set of ten editable mini lessons helps students THINK CRITICALLY and develop their ideas in literature as they learn about THEORIES OF PSYCHOLOGY and how to apply these to characters and ideas in texts. It's fascinating to apply theories such as 'the first follower', Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and the Oedipus Complex to literary characters - students love it!

Lessons include clear reference notes, examples and differentiated activities to reinforce understanding. Present, share online or print - all bases are covered! Answers are included, as is a bit of 'glitterto add a touch of fun to end on a high note!

This resource pack includes 4 formats for multiple teaching scenarios
PRESENTATION SLIDES - Students complete the activity that suits their ability level, then you can click to the next slide for answers. Finish that day's learning point by clicking to a third slide which gives a couple of minutes of fun - often English/ELA related. (Perfect for targeted teaching or lesson starters.)

PRINTABLE HANDOUTS of the activity and answer slides. Perfect if you don't have a big screen, for homework or to have at the ready for relief/sub-lessons. Slides are crammed onto pages for the budget-restricted teacher!

A DIGITAL ACTIVITY VERSION - Share online with students who choose their level, then type answers into the spaces provided. Answers are provided in a separate file to send out to students later. Perfect for homework, class work or sub-lessons.

PRINTABLE TASK CARDS - Keep answer cards separate, making them available later for students to self/peer mark. (Perfect for sub-lessons or early finishers.)
