There seems to be a terrible outbreak of the lurgy at school (or it might be Friday period 6). Here is the discussion from today’s lesson about linking Ibsen and Chaucer, based on the June 2016 AS exam passage for analysis from Merchant’s tale (starting L.525).
In another reduced class, we discussed Feminist readings and the conversation took a turn into the discussion of critical theories. I am keen to remind students that all critical theories are applied after the event – Feminism, Marxism, Freudian et al…
My favourite moment here is when one student asks: “bit isn’t that unfair…”
Once again, a reminder that we are linking Chaucer and Ibsen for the OCR A level.
