Thank you for sharing this resource. Sometimes, we become jaded teaching the same thing over and over again but going through this Power Point has helped rekindle my love for Shakespeare; particularly Romeo and Juliet.
Thanks once again.
The question: why we teach before how we teach is most apt and accordingly, the slides take us through a number of issues and areas that could be explored. The reference to modern texts and how issues of love are perceived and interpreted is particularly helpful.
This free teachers' pack contains classroom activities based on Rupert Goold's 2010/11 production of Romeo and Juliet. They have been designed with KS3 and KS4 students in mind, but can be adapted for other ages. The activities are:<br /><br />
- Presenting the prologue, as a way into the play<br />
- Designing the play<br />
- Exploring how Romeo and Juliet meet through movement
This really useful resource enables students to apply classic tragic structure to any Shakespeare tragedy.<br />
The worksheet helps students to apply audience effect to the events in any Shakespeare Tragedy. It is a great starting point for students to begin their analysis of structure and its effect on character, theme and audience response.<br />
The resource has a chart to record major events and apply tragic structure and audience responses as they read the play.<br />
This followed with an analytical table to develop their analysis further. Perfect to help them answer tricky structure questions in Literature exams.<br />
Their is an exemplar analysis of Romeo and Juliet to help give students some ideas and prompts on how to analyse structure.<br />
This resource is ideal for KS3, KS4 and KS5 students.
