The Seven ages of man- William Shakespeare

The Seven ages of man- William Shakespeare

I created this lesson during a topic titled "The history of the English Language". It explores language features used within the poem and exploration of key quotations. I have attached the poem as a blank copy for students to annotate and analyse. Included is a model answer, broken into a writing format for students to learn from and then have a go at responding themselves. This also includes a series of peer assessment questions for students to ask and respond to.
