Stage Types

Stage Types

This resource is a PowerPoint where on each slide is a stage type: thrust stage, end on stage, in the round and traverse stage. I have printed (A3) and laminated each slide to display in my dance studio. I refer to the stage types at KS3 when asking pupils to sit in the audience, ready for a class performance/assessment. “Year 7, take your places in the audience of a thrust stage.” This is also really useful to use as an aid for class management. At KS4, the display acts as a revision aid.

The Jew of Malta (Christopher Marlowe) quotes quiz WITH ANSWERS

The Jew of Malta (Christopher Marlowe) quotes quiz WITH ANSWERS

This quiz is designed for pupils studying Christopher Marlowe’s play “The Jew of Malta” (KS4/5). Students are asked to explain who spoke the line, roughly where it appears in the play, and its overall significance, as well as any techniques used by Marlowe (where appropriate). It was designed for my students as a closed-book quiz but you could of course run it as an open-book quiz. The answers indicate who spoke the line as well as exactly when in the play. In terms of significance no notes are made as multiple interpretations are possible and the emphasis is on rewarding the quality of student answers rather than exact content. Students could self-assess with you going through the answers in a whole-class setting; they could peer-assess; or you could take in the quizzes for you to mark them in a more detailed manner.

The questions in this file are replicated multiple times to ease printing, photocopying and distribution. They deal with affirmations made by Barabas and Ferneze in this scene and require students to justify their answers with evidence from Act 5 scene 1, as well as from elsewhere in the play where appropriate. Students could be given one or both questions either to respond to with short answers or to expand/develop into an essay.

The Jew of Malta film: guiding questions

The questions include topics such as possible cuts that could be made, the chronology of the film, and the casting. The questions could therefore be used by students of English, Drama, or Film Studies. There are three copies of the questions per page, for ease of printing, photocopying and distribution.

Bellamira PPT - The Jew of Malta (Christopher Marlowe)

Bellamira PPT - The Jew of Malta (Christopher Marlowe)

This PPT is designed to introduce students to the character of Bellamira in Marlowe’s play The Jew of Malta, starting with an image suggesting a modern prostitute as a stimulus for discussion. (Possible questions for students could be who they think this represents in the play - if you have asked them to read ahead - or what character traits or jobs are suggested by the image.) The focus then shifts to scenes 1 and 2 of Act 3 of the play. Again these could be read together in class, or something you have asked students to read alone before the lesson takes place. Student ideas are invited as to whether the scenes are comic or tragic. These could be elicited in any way you wish. The final slides invite students to direct one of the scenes from either a comic or tragic perspective, considering lighting etc. As such this lesson is suitable for English or Drama. It was initially designed for KS5 but could easily be used for KS4 as well.
