A lesson that explores Act 1 Scene 2.
Students consider how they can use powerful verbs to create atmosphere.
They then think about the qualities/personalities/connotations of a father and daughter and a magician and their magic.
They then apply these ideas and look at how Miranda converses with her father and analyse her language use. They they move on to focus on Prospero and choose from one of three arguments to focus their extended writing on. Students then produce a PEAL paragraph/extended response based on their selected essay question. There is also a PEAL/PEE support table mat to scaffold learning that includes a sample paragraph and quotation bank.
