The bits of Shakespeare that everyone should know.
After working through the original speech your students are asked to construct a 21st century version - for men - or women and to choose someone who epotomises each of their 'ages&'.
A list of 10 ways to learn spelling. I initially used it as CPD for staff to aid students but have also used it in lessons to help students spell. I hope you find it useful; it has gone down quite well when I used it in both situations.
Let Miss Reegi and our Clipped Classic Video help you share background and the current relevance of Shakespeare's timeless work. Clipped Classics engage students and promote discussion by presenting pertinent information and colorful visuals.

Balkis: Your wives – all nine hundred and ninety nine of you – didn’t half make Solomon’s life difficult! Never a thought for anyone but yourselves!
Mr. Butterfly: (Muttering) Sounds familiar!
Narrator: But come on! What happened next?
Balkis: Well, I suppose I was guilty of a bit of stirring here.
Mr. Butterfly: (Sarcastically) Oh really? My! That doesn’t sound at all like the female species!
Balkis: OK. So we all like to have a little fun at times! And I did have an overall goal in mind.
Solomon: So wise, my love!
Wife: (Snorting) Nothing like a bit of favouritism!
Narrator: Er, as an impartial observer, I do think the lovely Balkis had earned it! Now, what did you say to Mrs Butterfly?
Balkis: I told her that next time her husband made an idle threat or came up with some far-fetched story, she should challenge it. Say that she needed proof – that she wanted to actually see it happening.
Mr. Butterfly: (Gasping) Setting my wife against me? Well, really!
Mrs Butterfly: No, not really. I’d prefer to describe it as calling your bluff.
Solomon: Oh it was priceless. Watching Mr Butterfly squirming under his wife’s command – ‘Stamp! Stamp! Stamp!’
Balkis: And how wonderful for me to see my husband so enjoying this little drama, played out in front of him.
Solomon: Oh I forgot every worry I had in the world!
Wife: Even me?
Solomon: Even you!
Balkis: And all the other nine hundred and ninety eight! It was so good to see you laughing
