Get Ready to Deliver Facing History's New Unit 'Teaching An Inspector Calls' in Your Classroom

J. B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls remains as relevant today as when it was written in 1945: Priestley's focus on social responsibility and our interconnectedness as humans ("we are members of one body") feels particularly pertinent given current global events. 

Join this course to be guided through Facing History’s Teaching An Inspector Calls unit, which takes students through our unique pedagogy: Students will begin the unit by connecting with their identity, their relationship to society, and thinking about the impact that these have on their behaviour; they will use this new found understanding of themselves to better understand the characters and how their behaviour is impacted by the society in which they operate. After in-depth engagement with the text and its context, students will reflect on the themes of justice and social responsibility, and will consider how they can help create society which considers the needs of all. This reflective and critical engagement with the text is fully integrated with the GCSE curriculum and ensures that students can secure success in their exams, whilst exploring how they can be agents of change, who shape society for the better.

Teachers joining the three sessions on this course will become part of a core focus group of teachers who will roll out this unit in their classrooms with our support.

The three sessions will be held on:

  • 1st July 2020, 4-5.30pm BST
  • 8th July 2020, 4-5.30pm BST
  • 15th July 2020, 4-5.30pm BST
