THE TEMPEST Key Stage 3 Scheme of Work plus resources

This unit is based around Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’. I have taught it to both Year 7 and 8 though it could easily be adapted for a Year 9 class. It is designed to fit into a half-term but, depending on how many lessons you have, could be taught over a whole term. There is a 70+ slide PPT with a range of creative and enjoyable activities including drama-style tasks suitable for use in the English classroom such as a ‘guided tour’ of the island. There is also a homework project which runs throughout the unit and a Reading assessment essay built in. The Wordsworth Classics text is very cheap to buy and the 2010 film with Helen Mirren can be used alongside this unit as can the Animated Tales version. Thanks for looking.
