Teaching setting

The power of the SETTING - physical - political - cultural - social


Give your students a thorough understanding of 4 types of setting (physical, political, cultural and social) and their effect on characters and events.  Students will learn that setting is everything as they relate aspects of it to themselves and their studied text.


(Kiwi teachers, this is a great resource if you're encouraging students to think about how aspects of setting and character or events work together for NCEA 1.2 Aspects of Studied Texts.)


This resource includes:

⭐ On student information/workbook.


You and your students will enjoy:

❤️ Clear explanations of 4 types of setting.

❤️ Activities enabling students to relate each type of setting to themselves and/or their studied text.

❤️ Plenty of exploration through a mātauranga Māori lens.

❤️ Exploring the impact of setting(s) on character development.

❤️ Exploring the impact of setting(s) on events.

  • Sharing/Copying this Resource

    Feel free to purchase just one for your department - no need for a copy for each teacher.  However:

    • Please do NOT share with the school down the road. 
    • Please do NOT take it with you to a new school.
    • Feel free to suggest the website to others - that'd be great!

    That's pretty fair I think!  Let's help each other out.  :)
