I know this is meant for KS3 but I used it with two Y10 Learning Support groups who loved it. It helped clarify not only character but the idea of fate. I thinks this would work well with nay piece of Literature. It would be great for something like An Inspector Calls.
Actor Greg Hicks plays Macbeth in the 2004 production and believes the whole play is leading up to the moment we see in Act 5 Scene 5. He also discusses the play's theme of free will and fate and suggests that Macbeth had no control over his destiny. <br />
A resource that can be used to lead discussions as to the power of magic and the supernatural in Shakespeare's plays, the position that magic held in Tudor society and then within the court of James I and how magic and the supernatural are key elements within other Shakespeare plays and why. <br />
Suitable for upper Key Stage 2 onwards. <br />

This was for an SLT observation with a high ability Yr9 class focusing on fate and choice within Macbeth. I was so nervous that the lesson was graded as 'shite' even though on paper it was outstanding - the joys of NQT year. Included are the quotes for when students enter the room, Power Point presentation and lesson plan. Feel free to adapt or use. Constructive feedback appreciated. There is a link in the PP which I found on a shared Presi presentation from another teacher sharer which illustrates fate. This is a fantastic illustration but the credit is down to the creator of the presi not me, so hopefully they will not be offended that I have used it - it is damn good though and gets the point across a treat to those kind of students who love to debate and whose minds are constantly ticking - could use this at any point in lesson.
I created this fun pack as an attempt to engage my Year 11s in a topic which they had already heavily covered but had to come back to after the OCR exam mix up last year.
The pupils responded well to this pack, which encourages them to think about the cultural aspects of the novel. This can be used either in the classroom or for homework.
Pack contains 5 activities: Knowledge Check; Wordsearch; Character Facebook profiles; Identifying Quotes; and X-Factor. Additional activities for extended learning also included.
Group work based on the apprentice. Students to understand marketing and create an Easter Egg. Groups will design the packaging and poster. Follow on lesson could lead to Speaking and Listening assessment - by presenting their product to the Dragons from Dragons Den.
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.
