This is a complete, generic, unit for ANY of Shakespeare's plays.
It's a bundle that includes all key intro handouts, plus generic handoutsthat can be used with any of his amazing plays.
Included in this bundle are:
-Intro to the Elizabethan Era - Powerpoint and matching handout (fill-in-the-blank style)
-Elizabethan Beliefs handout: their "scientific" beliefs / a fun facts worksheet
-Elizabethan England: The Divine Right of Kings / Elizabethan superstitions
-How To Read A Play handout / "my role as director" worksheet (students look at costume, set, props, lighting, movement for any scene of their choice)
-Shakespeare's World: The Elizabethan Pyramid and the Great Chain of Being (with a worksheet where students create their own pyramid)
-Shakespeare's Comedy / Use of Stock Characters
-Shakespeare's use of Foil Characters
GENERIC HANDOUTS FOR HELPING TO TEACH A PLAY:
-Important Terminology Worksheet (includes aside, soliloquy etc.)
- Generic “Tweet the Play” worksheet (creates a great study guide as they fill it out!)
- Generic “Tracking Down Themes” worksheet
My goal with this bundle is to make teaching Shakespeare easy for you and fun for your students!
It's a great way to get started - and ease them into the play, by first giving some really important context and key info.
I've generated these handouts over years of teaching. I hope it helps you, and that you find yourself using these handouts over and over again.
(NOTE - may of them can also be used as part of ANY novel study too!)
