A lesson that explores the themes, context and characters of the scene from Romeo and Juliet.
Students are provided with a clear learning journey that is linked to blooms skills and the assessment objectives from the new spec AQA. The lesson follows a clear structure where students are introduced to the main idea, the theme/character analysis is developed and students then have the opportunity to apply their own skills independently.
Learning objectives and activities are clearly differentiated using RAG and stretch and challenge opportunities are in the form of 'Shakespeare Challenge' questions to help encourage students to extend their ideas.
This lesson is aimed at KS4 but could be adapted for use with KS3 students.
Planned as a double (2 hour lesson) but could easily be split into two separate 1 hour lessons.
