The Cohen Curricula Teacher Resource: Advanced Module A: Intertextual Perspectives: Fritz Lang's Metropolis and George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-four (1984) provides a detailed, syllabus aligned program with extensive accompanying resources. The teaching program identifies the outcomes relevant to the study of these texts aligned with the syllabus description and teaching strategies. The program presents a detailed teaching scope and sequence with suggested lesson ideas for presenting the module. Worksheets and resources provide detailed studies for students to engage with the outcomes and the language of the module.Your resources are hyperlinked for easy print off from each workshop template.

The resource has biographical worksheets, a list of salient academic resources, most of these hyperlinked (or provided in an annotated bibliography), and an overview of the text, its allusions and key language for study. The resource then presents textual, sociological, theoretical, political and semiotic perspectives, twelve different perspectives that can be used to focus your teaching. Each perspective presents a focus question placed in a table, then the key idea that has been focused on (there are so many ideas in these texts but those presented cover all the major ideas you would want your students to study but you can feel free to add more). A summary analysis has then been presented for how each text presents ideas for the perspective and suggests the implicit and explicit links between the texts. Each perspective then has a series of questions, ready to print off and hand out to your students, to have them determine their perspective of the perspective, so to speak. A discrete 'Audience' workshop is provided as well as a 'History of Literature' workshop. You have been provided with a range of sample essay questions which are embedded throughout the resource.

Further extensive worksheets provided in this resource all contain prompt questions to support your students in developing their response to the text. The material incorporates vocabulary and worksheets for film, silent film and prose fiction including tables of techniques ready to be filled in with detail from your teaching or their personal study of the texts. A concept workshop, heavily annotated with what the syllabus requirements demand is presented ready for students to add their examples from the text – which can be found in the analytical summaries. A detailed Metropolis and 1984 ‘Context’ workshop with accompanying worksheets, a Metropolis and 1984 focused ‘Themes, Issues and Ideas’ workshop, a Metropolis and 1984 ‘Values’ workshop and our ‘LIMP’ layered deconstruction process are provided; the worksheets are all ready to print off and photocopy emphasising and staying focused on the correlative and conceptual nature of the module. Our 'Essay Writing’ workshop prepares students to engage with the range of essay questions that are found throughout the resource. Scaffolds, sentence starters, peer marking checklists and rubrics are provided.
