Twelfth Night: Activity Pack for GCSE (first teaching 2015)

Set text for: Edexcel

Approach this play from all angles! This engaging companion provides a variety of stimulating, ready-to-use activities, covering all aspects of the play.

Carefully considered structure develops understanding:

  1. Build a foundation for learning and get students interested with introductory pre-reading exercises.
  2. Dig deeper with text-based activities. For each scene, at least two activities explore different aspects of the play through drama, debate, research and imaginative writing. Additional 'Quote Quests' and guided notes pages with sentence starters encourage knowledge retention.
  3. Consolidate knowledge with whole-text activities focusing on: Characterisation • Relationships • Setting • Themes • Ideas and Messages • Language • Form • Structure • Context
I wish all GCSE material was of this high a standard! It is matched to the specification but retains a real sense of exploration and fun. J Whitbread, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer (of legacy spec. edition)

The fantastic structure makes the pack accessible for your whole class. AOs are cross-referenced throughout - making outcomes crystal clear!
