An Inspector Calls Companion Revision Guide (Act 3)


Unit 1: In the opening stage directions of the play, Priestly describes the Edwardian residence belonging to the Birling family.

P:   In detailed stage directions at the beginning of the play Priestley describes the setting of the play, the dining room exemplifies a typical ‘suburban’ house of the Edwardian period and clearly belongs to a ‘prosperous manufacturer.’

 E:    (The general effect is substantial and heavily comfortable but not comfortable and homelike.)    P1/Pr                                               

E:   The description of the Birling residence clearly shows that the home belongs to a wealthy man. It mirrors the Birling family in that it is functional and fashionable but lacking in warmth. The home symbolises their inherent harshness and lack of human kindness. Birling twice describes himself as a ‘hard-headed businessman’ and as seen in the stage directions and is also described as ‘heavy-looking’ suggesting a kind of dour or severe personality.

Saved By The Teacher Companion Revision Notes  based on the PEE code (Point, Evidence, Explanation) are unique and unlike any other revision guides on the market because students and their parents can systematically track through the full text using a series of colour-coded buttons to help map plot, character development, themes, historical context and use of language.

Experienced teacher Sarah Haggar Batten has tested the Saved By The Revision Notes over many years and has gathered much evidence to suggest that revising texts in conjunction with PEE Guides help improve results by at least one grade.

These comprehensive revision notes provide the voice of a personal home tutor and equate to approximately 12 hours of expensive personal tutoring. They can also be used as part of the on-going revision process and can be revisited several times. At the end of the revision process students can lay down their texts and rely on the notes to support last minute revision.

Sarah Haggar Batten is happy to provide parents, carers and students with further support and guidance via email in the first instance:
