Introducing Shakespeare in Year 7/8
These comprehensive resources are packed with materials to introduce KS3 pupils to two of Shakespeare’s comedy and tragedy plays – building knowledge of language, techniques, characters, themes, genre, and much more.
- Fulfils the requirement of the 2014 curriculum to study two whole plays!
For both plays...
- Keep students engaged: insightful activities for every scene with worksheets provided for write-on exercises
- Decipher Shakespearean language: modern adaptations of three key scenes
- Consolidate key plot points: all remaining scenes summarised through clear, concise narrative notes
Comparing the modern and original versions (both provided) and working out meanings, group discussions and debates, independent research, creative writing, role play, close reading and many more!
|A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Tempest||Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth||Coming soon!|
Incredibly detailed... The suggestions for activities are excellent. The narrative notes on the scenes are incredibly useful... I also like that, although full scenes have been chosen for detailed analysis, there are notes and suggested activities for all the scenes to enable a deeper study of the play. It gives a varied selection of activities to suit a variety of learning styles; therefore, making it extremely good value for money. P Town, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
|Linked to learning objectives based on the 2014 curriculum requirements throughout!|
I really like the creative approach to these tasks – a lot of food for thought for teachers. Clearly linked to the National Curriculum aims – very teacher-friendly... Modern-day versions are helpful teaching resources that would enhance learning. R Goulds, HoD & Independent Reviewer
Focus on key scenes and the breakdown of language is clear and helpful. Extremely accessible for a range of abilities... The tasks, research and lesson suggestions will engage a wide range of pupils. E Evans, HoD & Independent Reviewer
