I am in my sixth year of teaching English at a secondary school and I also have responsibilities for reading across the school. I also have a form group so most of my lessons are mainly based around key English topics with some PSHE and Citizenship added in there too! I'd love to know what you think so please feel free to leave me some feedback :)

Macbeth: Act 5 Scene 5 analysis

Macbeth: Act 5 Scene 5 analysis

(0)
This full lesson pulls apart key quotations from Act 5 Scene 5 and explores the deterioration of Macbeth's character. It explores Shakespeare's use of structure and language in a simple way that is easy for students to understand. There is also a sheet with key questions directed at key sections of the scene which is very useful for KS3 or lower ability students. It allows them to explore the scene totally unaided - my students felt confident in their understanding of the scene after completing this activity and were a lot more confident in developing their analysis afterwards. A great place to start for students who are reluctant to study Shakespeare or don't have the confidence to do so!

How to analyse an extract from Romeo and Juliet

(0)
A really useful lesson (that can quite easily be expanded into a few lessons) to help lower ability students explore an extract from Romeo and Juliet independently. This will be specifically useful when meeting the demands of the new curriculum! There is a handy scaffold to use as well as four examples of it being used to analyse an extract. There are also five extracts from the play attached.

Romeo and Juliet: Tybalt's death

(0)
A few activities that could be expanded into a number of lessons relating to Tybalt's death. These activities focus on how Shakespeare may have wanted this scene to be performed and encourages students to use drama to explore it in more depth. Five performed versions are attached to allow students to visualise Tybalt's death in more depth.
Poetry analysis scaffold

Poetry analysis scaffold

(1)
A handy scaffold to use when teaching poetry analysis to students who need more support (or students who need a starting point). This can be used at the start of a scheme to ensure students hit all of the criteria when analysing in more depth independently.
