Shakespeare Play Generator

Shakespeare Play Generator

Included are two files to coordinate a lesson where students are given random cards to formulate their own Shakespeare play. The first is a document to cut up and distribute into different envelopes/boxes etc. This includes character names, plots, jobs, antagonists and so on. I’ve tried to keep them as Shakespearean as possible! The other is a worksheet set that includes a plot mapper and a storyboard that they plan in six parts. I’ve used this a few times and it’s always been brilliant. I split the group into two and call them the Bards and the Players. We have a competition and develop props and staging. There are LOADS of ways you can develop this. I hope you enjoy using this. Please leave feedback or suggestions! It’d be really appreciated.

An Inspector Calls Comprehension Booklets

An Inspector Calls Comprehension Booklets

Absolutely ideal for independent work: both for stretch and challenge, or for a student who has missed a lot, or all of the play. I have used them this year with both mid-year entrants who have not studied the play, as well as a LA KS4 class who have responded incredibly well to them. Each booklet gives a real overview of the play and allows pupils to explore the play at their own pace. Each booklet contains the full Act, with comprehension questions interspersed within. The questions are a mix of AO1, AO2 and AO3, as well as some opinion questions. At the back of each booklet there is either a quotation or writer’s methods resource, as well as three exam-style questions to complete.

Changing Perspectives in Fairy Tales and a full, concise preparation and assessment booklet.

Changing Perspectives in Fairy Tales and a full, concise preparation and assessment booklet.

Fairy Tales are canonical texts, passed through the ages. These resources ask pupils to explore the different characters perspectives in fairy tales and then helps guide them into preparation for their own performance of a classic Fairy Tale. For higher ability or older students you could ask them to modernise the fairy tales or even ‘explode the canon’ and turn the fairy tale on it’s head! Thanks so much for viewing, please review and feel free to browse to other resources too (many of them are free as I know how hard us teachers work!) Many thanks, Short
