KS3, KS2, "A Midsummer Night's Dream", Act 2 s.1, Puck, typical atypical fairy, reading, writing

KS3, KS2, "A Midsummer Night's Dream", Act 2 s.1, Puck, typical atypical fairy, reading, writing

This is a lengthy powerpoint created for a year 7 class which stretched across two hour-long lessons but which is easy to shorten or extend. The focus is on Act 2, scene 1 of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” where Puck describes himself and his pranks to another fairy. The lesson aim is to describe someone who’s typical and establish whether Puck is a typical example. The description of a typical fairy comes through the writing of a whole-class acrostic poem and then an individual cinquain (models of both are provided). The lesson then moves on to look at Puck’s conversation with the fairy and there is a multiple-choice quiz which could be completed in pairs or individually. Once the pupils have completed the quiz, the lesson then moves on to a close focus on the scene and the children are asked to compile a table explaining which aspects of Puck’s behaviour are typical of a fairy and which are less expected. There is a second multiple-choice quiz which could be set as homework to consolidate the learning of the lesson. You won’t see all the pages in the preview so please be aware that the quiz for use in the lesson is in Comic Sans and the homework quiz is in Calibri!
