Twelfth Night Study Guide

This guide includes a range of GCSE targeted commentaries which analyse and discuss each scene and the text as a whole. The consistent and accessible structure is designed to complement students’ own understanding of the text as they work through it and encourages further inference in a digestible manner. It could also be dipped into during lessons when needed for that additional interpretation or task!

Students who have used this resource alongside the text will end up with a good, solid knowledge and understanding of the play

What do teachers say about this resource? (4821)

Students who have used this resource alongside the text will end up with a good, solid knowledge and understanding of the play... Coverage of theme and language is particularly good.

J Marsh, Expert Reviewer

On the whole I liked this resource... The context is thorough and unbiased, which when discussing Shakespeare is rare... I like the character analysis that uses embedded quotations as this could be used to show how to write a good response. The way symbolism has been explored is particularly useful.

C Marshall, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

The depth of the information, particularly the scene-by-scene breakdown, is very well researched and considered... The focus on language use in the play encourages pupils to examine the text in detail and to search for layers of meaning and interpretation... I was impressed with the level of detail in this resource, and the contextual information I felt was particularly useful...

C Jepson, HoD, Examiner & Peer Reviewer

Generally an extremely detailed resource... It enhances learning by offering an end-to-end detailed picture of the whole play... I particularly liked the explanation of the quotes for each scene. J Selwood, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
