Comparing texts about tigers

This resource includes three texts about tigers, including a piece of 19th-century non-fiction, a 19th-century fictional extract and an 18th-century poem.  Includes a variety of tasks, from analysis to creative writing. There are also teacher notes with other lesson/homework ideas. 

Sample content

  1. Decide which of the three texts, in your view, presents the tiger most effectively and vividly. Explain your choice.

In your response you could include:

  • the mood and tone of the text, e.g. dark, fearful, frightening, mysterious, questioning
  • narrative viewpoint and effect, e.g. first person creates a sense of empathy
  • use of language, e.g. imagery, repetition, alliteration, onomatopoeia
  • structural techniques, e.g. repetition, contrast, focal shifts, ending.

I am going to use this as a reading intervention to challenge my Y9 students. It is so varied and fasinating, we will be able to study language technique, poetry, historical setting, attitudes to animals in the past, animal rights, facs and opinions, paragraphing etc.
Really pleased I found this gem!
