Female Shakespeare Characters Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords KS4 Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Female Shakespeare Characters Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords KS4 Settler Starter Cover Lesson

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of 'Female Shakespeare Characters'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Persuasive speech - Should Romeo and Juliet REALLY be allowed to get married?

Persuasive speech - Should Romeo and Juliet REALLY be allowed to get married?

A lesson in which pupils cover what is meant by the IPERSUADE devices used for a persuasive speech. This speech links to the pupil's study of Romeo and Juliet and towards the question 'Should Romeo and Juliet REALLY be allowed to get married?' This gives pupils the opportunity to practice their AO5/6 skills for English language and mixing their AO1/3 skills for Literature. This was a really engaging activity and pupils loved arguing their point of view on the issue.

Macbeth Comprehension Questions for Every Scene

Macbeth Comprehension Questions for Every Scene

I’ve created this collection of questions because I thought it would be helpful to have them all in one place. I’ve spent too many hours creating quick comprehension quizzes on slips of paper, losing them and having to write them all over again the following year. Although this has taken time to put together it will save time in the long run! It is a Word document collection of 10 comprehension questions, with answers, for every single scene in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. They can be used as starter activities, homework, plenaries or a quick knowledge check during the lesson. I’ve created them for GCSE but they could also be used for KS3. The idea is for them to provide you with a quick check of your students’ knowledge of the scene and, of course, to save you preparation time. They cover a range of questions from simple comprehension to missing words on key quotations. I’ve deliberately added at least one question for each scene which can be discussed at length after the quiz. I’ve also turned the questions for each scene into a YouTube video if you would prefer to use that (free) format. They involve no preparation as the answers are included in the video. They can be found on my channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpQBaeLx2EJYRzAw9tA5W5A?view_as=subscriber
