'King Lear' - A Study Commentary (Teaching Copy)

This 198-page resource supports teachers and students working towards AP and IB examinations. It is a line-by-line analysis of the play at a level, and in a manner, that all senior students will find accessible and engaging. It asks, of each scene, ‘What’s really happening here?’ and offers detailed answers – while challenging students, by means of brief but penetrating writing tasks, to find answers of their own. It also provides essay questions in the style of AP and IB. From an AP Central Teachers’ Resources Review: “A superb teacher’s resource: it offers a beautifully structured plan for a curriculum unit on Lear.” It is available in both a Teaching Copy (this one) and a Student Edition (with a separate Answers section at the end). The resource effectively supports the Common Core State Standards CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.1-6 and CC.ELA-LITERACY.RL.11.12.1-6. It has recently been republished in paperback under the title ‘Study Guide: A King Lear Commentary: Teaching Copy‘ and with the ISBNs 978-1071193921 and 1071193929.
