An excellent resource. These visual mind maps are a fantastic revision tool giving students a clear overview of the plot and ideas in the play. K McLoughlin, English and Drama Teacher (Twelfth Night)
Fun, extremely useful and easy for students to understand and interact with. Teachers could easily use this in lessons or students could interact with it independently. K Bevan, Drama Teacher (Twelfth Night)

What do teachers say about this resource? (8610)

A great way to explore the play’s narrative themes, context and character. A range of activities that relate to the events of the play. Many options for each section of text. Particularly [useful] for homework when reinforcing material learnt in class." S Trustman, Head of Drama and Satisfied Customer

This resource is exactly what I was hoping for. The sheets are really well laid out and student friendly. [...] I particularly liked the A3 design, which could work a little like a literacy mat in class. I think it poses useful thinking activities and a high level of challenge. [...] I think this resource will be very useful in the latter stages of revising. A student could have a pack of these resources as independent revision materials, and they will support with the 'cramming' aspect of revision nearer the time. Alternatively they will support in consolidating the ideas after a first read." K Brown, HoD and Independent Reviewer
