I've adapted this from a powerpoint using freeze frames from &'The Simpson&';s' version of Macbeth which aired in September (this was kindly provided by another TES user). I laminated this and had students work in pairs. They used this in conjunction with the card sort activity to place a card over the frame which contained that particular feature. At the end of the activity students should conclude that this is a tragedy and be able to identify the elements that make it so.
Lesson with Powerpoint looking at Shakespeare's insults. To take the fear out of the language, students practise delivering the insults to one another. I created the Elizabethan insults dictionary to help students decode the meanings and then create their own Elizabethan insults.
This poetry resource examines Salome by Carol Ann Duffy. It contains a worksheet activity, a psychiatric evaluation of Salome useful in exploring the poems persona. The second resource is a powerpoint presentation, the starter exercise, showing quotes about women which, bar one, emphasise women as frail and passive. Spot the odd one out. Discussion: how society views women and violence. Slides show female serial killers: some women are capable of extreme violence.
Full lesson! Starter activity with Elizabethan pronouns, a worksheet with matching phrases to their modern meanings and a glossary of Elizabethan vocabulary. This builds towards an activity where students create their own brief drama script using Elizabethan language.
One worksheet that works for fiction/non-fiction. It shows students the 'steps' in analysing language in a clear way. It moves from literal meaning to connotations and ends with the impact on the reader/audience. A clear framework which can be used to scaffold/support students at various stages of their learning. Can be used for KS3 or 4 and can easily be adapted to the life after levels programme your school uses.
Drama Extension Activities PowerPoint. Includes five extension menu choice boards for differentiating instruction for any drama unit. These were developed originally to be used with the plays "A Christmas Carol" and "The Diary of Anne Frank," but can be used with any play or dramatization. There are extension menus or enrichment activities for author, time period, play comprehension, drama terms and an independent study guide and a menu of reading project ideas for multiple intelligences-auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. Also included is an oral presentation rubric and a peer evaluation form. Useful for gifted students who need extra independent work. You will also have a color slide for each menu for projection on a white board and printer friendly student handout. Editable for your own classroom use. Enjoy. - HappyEdugator
A series of lessons covering Shakespeare's Othello. Originally covered with a Year 9 group but can be differentiated accordingly and would work with A Level Students. The resource includes PowerPoint slides, resources and assessment questions.
These are all my resources for teaching the play version of Curious Incident, for the new AQA GCSE Literature spec. The resources are numbered from 1-21 to be used in order. There are a mixture of resources, mostly in the structure of a powerpoint that should take 2-3 lessons depending on class to cover content and analysis, and then an activity worksheet to work through skills or refresh knowledge. There is also a themes pack where students can record links to various themes, and a list of potential subjects for exam questions. All powerpoints and tasks are differentiated, with extension work and scaffolded work. There are also 2 exam papers to be taken as progress tests, one in the middle of the content and one at the end.
