This bundle contains four play scripts: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Macbeth, Hamlet and Richard III. It also contains six reading comprehension activities; a biography writing unit about William Shakespeare and a discussion based writing unit about which play was his greatest.
The six close reading activities, or informational texts, are about:
The Life of William Shakespeare
Romeo & Juliet
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
These activities require NO PREP and have a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers. Answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of each document.
Secondly, there is a biography writing unit about Shakespeare. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.
Finally, there is a discussion based writing unit discussing which play is his greatest - Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth or Hamlet. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.
