These sheets are all you need to create a challenging yet enjoyable lesson. Kids love this task as it enables them to legitimately insult one another whilst following thes elearning objectives:
1) How to write and Shakespearean phrases, use new vocabulary, use the grammatical structures and create word coinages.
2) Mastering the archaic vocabulary with their partners.
3) How to deliver short but effective lines dramatically, ad-libbing and varying according to context.
I've used this with boys studying 'Henry V' (English troops insulting French ones and vice versa) with girls students studying 'Richard III' (Lady Anne and Richard trade insults) - and for students of 'The Tempest'.
Students can, if they wish, adapt their language choices for a particular play. Caliban and Prosero's language is a mix of magical and eloquent for Prospero, with more nature-themed curses for Caliban, whereas the historical plays can bring in more historical, supernatural and military language.
