Shakespeare Booklet: Exploring Shakespeare's World (KS3)

(4)
This is an extremely dense 12 page booklet with easily an entire scheme of work. This has been created to give year 7 an introduction to Shakespeare: to understand his life, works, times, theatre and to grasp how a script works. There are two pages which focus on Shakespeare’s villains (Don John and Iago) but in reality this is to simply expose students to Shakespeare’s life and characters rather than to complete in depth analysis of a plot and character. Although this was created with year 7 in mind it would fill a gap at any level of Key Stage 3 if students’ knowledge of Elizabethan England is lacking. Both the editable Word document and .pdf are provided - please note the word document may not appear like the booklet pdf because of font use and formatting. This booklet is also available as part of a Shakespeare bundle with two other KS3 booklets covering Shakespeare heroes and the idea of tragic heroes and Shakespeare’s relationships. The booklet is as follows: 1 - front cover and basic dramatic terminology glossary 2 - William Shakespeare information with space to create a fact file 3 - Shakespeare’s works - basic information, followed by a task to understand the difference between comedies, tragedies and histories then sorting key plays into each type 4+5 - a double page spread with a timeline across Elizabethan and Jacobean England. At the top students can create a timeline of historical events and then plot Shakespeare’s life underneath (perhaps using page 2) 6 - Elizabethan entertainment - 4 boxes for students to complete information about bear baiting, bull baiting, cock fighting and the theatre - I have attached the factfile made to accompany this lesson. 7- The Globe Theatre - A label the Globe picture followed by a gap fill about its history (in image) 8- Understanding a script - the first scene of Macbeth is used to explain the layout of a script, followed by a gap underneath for students to make their own mini script using a similar layout and features. 9- Stage directions- a list of common Shakespeare stage directions with definitions for students to match followed by some complex stage directions to "translate" 10 - An explanation of the character and his motives, an extract from the play (1.3) and a series of questions which track students through the extract. 11 - An explanation of the character and his motives,an extract from 1.1 alongside a modern translation followed by a series of questions. 12- a common words glossary where students should independently record new words learnt.

Shakespeare Week: An introduction to Shakespeare

(0)
Clear and varied presentation which engages the students and gives them clear facts and points on the playwright's life. The objectives are to give rhe students a historical overview, trigger questions from them, and to test them on on key facts at the end. It establishes a knowledge base for them.The slide with Elizabeth I's Armada portrait is very helpful as there are many images on the pairing that the students can talk about. Ask them: how is the painter of this picture portraying Elizabeth as a powerful queen? Expect lots of varied answers. The presentation is a good differentiator and triggers great classroom discussions whilst enabling the students to have a better grasp of Shakespeare's own life and contextual background. Ideal for any secondary age. I've used it at KS3, GCSE, IGCSE and A level. Bargain!

Shakespeare Booklet: Heroes (KS3)

(0)
This 12 page booklet is designed to give students a taster of a range of Shakespeare plays and characters who might be considered heroes, or tragic heroes. This booklet was originally designed for year 8 but would work across the whole of Key Stage 3. The booklet offers activities alongside extracts giving students a taste of Shakespeare and his characters and methods, rather than the plot of whole plays. It also gives students a gentle introduction to the idea of the tragic hero. The booklet includes the following extracts/activities: A front page which allows students to consider heroic qualities. A prior knowledge page where students can enter what they already know about Shakespeare and three key plays. A terminology page with key play and strucural terminology. A page with gap-fill definitions of tragic hero, foil, aside and hamartia. A rank the heroic events page, where students must rank a range of events which link to the extracts they will later study for a S+L lesson. A range of descriptions about Macbeth from across each act in the play, with a heroic/villainous graph to plot his change (also useful at KS4). Two small extracts with descriptions about Macbeth from the start and end of the play. A range of extracts looking at Shakespeare’s heroines: Juliet, Cordelia, and Cleopatra A speech from ‘Hamlet’ A summary pagewhere students rank all of the characters and answer overview questions of the unit. A common vocabulary page to create a Shakespeare glossary.

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.
