Reading Course Term 3: The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

Great literature often teaches about the world we live in, and this novel certainly does that. We don’t just learn about events in WWII; we also discover how seeing events through the eyes of an innocent child is a highly effective authorial decision, how characterisation is achieved through dialogue, and how writers can create empathy through juxtaposition.

  • Tutorials – The tutorials are a blend of the tutor reading aloud, discussions about the novel and written work
  • Reading requirements – Students do not need to read the novel before the lessons. However, students will need to do some reading outside of tutorials during the term. Purchasing the novel is recommended. You can find copies in our bookshop
  • Feedback and support – Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials using Google Classrooms. It is useful to have a Google account that they can use for this purpose
  • Homework – Optional homework opportunities provided.
