The picture of Shakespeare is not one I am familiar with, please cite? I think it could use some "why does it matter to the study of Shakespeare?" moments. If Elizabeth is the Monarch throughout Shakespeare's life, is that why he writes such strong women? Who else is writing? What about his indoor playhouse? What about his plays...why did he write them the way he did?
Group task to introduce students to Shakespeare, Elizabethan England and theatre etc. They complete a fact find using the information supplied in packs. Great if you give a time limit at each table so they are against the clock.

A printable worksheet handout including a range of tasks for pupil assessment of Macbeth by William Shakespeare. Students choose one task from each of the different strands and have a week to complete each assessment.
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.
