Shakespeare Speed Dating

Shakespeare Speed Dating

This is a fully planned lesson on Romeo & Juliet’s Act 2 Scene 2 based around the concept of speed dating. It encourages the students to work with many different people in the class for short periods of time. It’s a great introduction to this scene which puts the pupils in the role of the reseacher. I did this lesson with my year 9’s top set but it can be adapted to suit GCSE and lower sets.

Henry V Shakespeare Act 1 Activities

Henry V Shakespeare Act 1 Activities

A range of activities, from Drama to close language analysis to build confidence and start exploring Shakespeare’s ‘Henry V’. The Drama activity comes from an INSET where I wrote up some notes but could easily be done in small groups or through drawing if there isn’t space for Drama activities. Any edition of the play can be used, I printed out some key bits from the Folger online so didn’t need books at all.

Murder at Markham Manor- drama starter for mystery fiction

Murder at Markham Manor- drama starter for mystery fiction

This is a short ‘Whodunit?’ play I created. I used it with a Year 7 class but it would be suitable for any KS3 year group. There are 11 parts in the play, I have included an instructions sheet which explains how the play works. I used this as a starter activity to introduce mystery writing and building of suspense. Enjoy!

DEATH OF A SALESMAN

DEATH OF A SALESMAN

This file contains one criss-cross puzzle and one wordsearch, both using characters who appear in Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman”. In the criss-cross puzzle the student will be asked to name the characters from the clues provided, and then enter these into the matching squares in the numbered grid. In the wordsearch puzzle the student has to find in the grid all the characters listed. For both puzzles, there is a printable sheet for the student and a solution sheet for the teacher. As usual, to make the answers easier to locate in the word-search solution, I have highlighted the first letter of each name in yellow, or orange when the letter begins two names running in different directions. I have included two versions, one in PDF and the second an Excel file, whichever is your preference.
