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 one-day seminar to be guided through Facing History’s Teaching An Inspector Calls unit, which takes students through our unique pedagogy. The unit begins by connecting students with their identity, their relationship to society, and thinking about the impact that these have on their behaviour. They 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.

Join us for a one-day course to explore how to teach this unit in your classroom, and leave with a new way of teaching a much-loved text. 

Thanks to the generosity of a donor, we are able to offer this seminar free of charge. We ask that you complete a short survey at the end of the seminar.

This event will be hosted in-person at The Shard.
