Challenging class and gender (Part 2)

In this lesson we will explore the rigid class structure and the character of Gerald Croft. We will explore the class structure in more detail to understand why the characters react differently to the Inspector's warning. This lesson makes reference to the topics of violence and suicide. If these issues are sensitive for you, we recommend checking with a trusted adult before starting, or doing the lesson with a trusted adult nearby.
