The aim of this scheme of work is for students to explore and understand Anton Chekhov’s famous text Uncle Vanya through practical class work and exploration of stage design in order to answer the written questions on the DA4 paper from the WJEC exam board. The intention is that students will learn not only the historical and social context of the play and its author, but that students will delve into practical work with a view to applying this in their written paper.
This scheme is aimed at A2 level students who are required to answer a pre-1900 set text question in Section A of the DA4 paper. Although it is written with the WJEC DA4 exam in mind, it can easily be applied to any exam board that requires students to answer a written paper on this text.
