Mistaken identity, misplaced passions and the folly of ambition come together to create one of Shakespeare’s most hilarious, most ridiculous and most antic-filled plays.

Engage your class in Twelfth Night’s topsy-turvy storyline and tangled web of characters with a variety of ready-to-use handouts, covering the whole text, for you to mix and match to suit your class.

Follows the specification really well, accurately ‘translating’ the AOs to something understandable by students and teachers

What do teachers say about this resource? (7650)

I was really impressed with this resource. I particularly liked the focus on audience reception and theory at the end. This is a key skill that some students find it hard to comment on. Also, I appreciated the suggested debate responses that some inexperienced teachers of this specification would find very helpful. I felt that this resource would be particularly helpful to teachers who were teaching A level for the first time... The information on genre and conventions was thorough and detailed. This would be very helpful for students... The activities that focused on each act were excellent. In addition, I liked the pre-reading and post-reading activities.
