Priestley's World and the World of the Play

This is the corresponding PowerPoint for Lesson 4 of the unit Teaching An Inspector Calls. In this lesson, students learn about important events that occurred during Priestley’s lifetime up until 1945, and about Priestley's ideological beliefs.

This PowerPoint includes student-facing slides and activity instructions in the notes section for the teacher. It is intended to be used alongside, and not instead of, the lesson plan. The PowerPoint includes basic media and prompts from the lesson plan, but we expect you to adapt it to fit the needs of your students and class.
