Literature through the Ages SOW

This SOW is meant to increase pupils' cultural capital. It starts with the general information about literature, introduces literary timeline, explains how literary canon is created. It then moves to Ancient Greece the development of writing, Homer, the philosophers, Aesop's fables - oral tradition. Next there is the study of the Greek theatre - Antigone by Sophocles. Then, we move on to study the Bible and link it to the story of creation in the GreekMythology. After that there is the closer look at the Medieval Period -Chaucer, The Renaissance and Paradise Lost, and finally the Romantics and poetry. This SOW included the baseline assessment (lesson to introduce as well) and the end of unit assessment (the Romanticism). There are 6 core lessons and some of the suggested lessons - it is a work in progress and I will upload all lessons at the end of this half term.... MORE
