Unseen Fiction Texts: Pre-1900

In this lesson, we will start by finding out a little bit about the background of our next text which is an extract from Bram Stoker's 'Dracula'. We will look at the key themes as well as generic contexts before beginning to read the extract. When reading the extract, we will draw on our learning from previous lessons and revisit our reading process. You will be provided with prompt questions to help you track your way through the text systematically, thinking about what happens - first / next / then and finally. Feedback will be given at each stage.
