Hip Hop Shakespeare: Twelfth Night Resources
Fun, up-to-date teaching resources for modernising Shakespeare. Multimedia lesson includes video and audio. This activity involves students watching a TED talk by hip-hop artist Akala, who highlights links between Shakespeare and hip-hop. Students answer a few questions about this talk, then watch another video - a fictional rap battle between Shakespeare and Dr Seuss. Students then compose their own rap verse (as Shakespeare) to 'speak back' to Thing One and Thing Two.
