Shakespeare research task

Shakespeare research task

A set of question and answers on Shakespeare's life, Elizabethan England and the theatre. I've used this as an introduction exercise. I usually split the group into three and give them a section to research each and then feedback. You could however, ask them to tackle the whole thing in pairs or set as homework. Student answers can vary depending on what they have used to find the answers, so the answer sheet provided is really just a guide. I've used this as an opportunity to discuss why we can't be sure about some areas of Shakespeare's life. The activity can also lead to some interesting discussions on class, power, freedom and the role of women.

Shakespeare's Sonnets

Shakespeare's Sonnets

This is a series of 4-5 lessons that explore 3 of Shakespeare's sonnets (1 for homework) as a way to introduce Y7 to analysis for Shakespeare in a light hearted and quirky way. The scheme starts with a comparison between Shakespeare and Justin Beiber lyrics as way to explore the commonalties in language of love. It then progresses to analysing sonnets 116 and 104. The lessons finish with students working in groups to create their own sonnets, using images and words as challenge stimulus. The resource also includes a homework investigation that can be done as a lesson or as a project to then be presented in a Shakespeare market place as another lesson led by the students.
