Romeo and Juliet for IGCSE - Complete TEACHING + EXAM PRACTICE BUNDLE

This bundle contains ALL my print-and-use worksheets, handouts, and teaching activities for my extensive unit on Shakespeare's *Romeo and Juliet*. As *Romeo and Juliet* is one of the set texts on the IGCSE English Literature exams for 2019, 2020, and 2021, I have taken it upon myself to put together this resource to optimally prepare my students for the exams. Most resources, in my opinion, are too patronising of the students and / or do not cater specifically to the higher level criteria and requirements of the IGCSE Literature exams. Keeping all this in mind, the bundle contains worksheets / handouts for just about EVERY SCENE of the play. Each worksheet includes a variety of the following: 1. Comprehension & Close Reading Questions (for all scenes). 2. Dramatic Reading / Role-play or Re-enactment Activity to help students engage with the text in a multi-sensory manner and to try to make the text on the page come to life. 3. Shakespeare in Context: Various information texts to give students a better insight into the context of composition, Shakespeare's England, and the critical reception of the play. 4.. Analysing Character, Language, Structure, Plot, Themes and Stylistic Devices Activities (these differ and are adapted to what each scene is most suited to). There is a specific focus on IGCSE Literature assessment criteria, and the practice activities offer lots of guidance for student practice. 5. Creative Writing and Personal Response Tasks - depending on the scene and how well it lends itself for this, a creative writing and / or personal response activity is included. 6. Close Reading / Extract Exam Practice Questions with extensive guidance to help students prepare for the exams. 7. Review Quizzes / Assessment Activities for each Act of the play. 8. MODEL ANSWERS + TEACHER'S NOTES section for ALL WORKSHEETS, include detailed answers to all questions and activities and are designed to help teachers gain a deeper understanding of the play, guide their assessment of the students essays / extract analysis questions, and generally to help when teaching this iconic but albeit complex Shakespearean tragedy. This print-and-use lesson worksheet is part of my teaching unit for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. It focuses specifically on Act 4 and Act 5 of the play. The worksheet includes: Lastly, I am in the middle of teaching this unit myself, right now, and so it is very likely that I wll make changes and update this resource (free of charge, of course!) This is very much a work in progress, in other words. So if you have feedback / requests for this resource, please let me know by email rather than leaving a bad review. Thanks in advance!
