This is often called one of Shakespeare's problem plays. While ostensibly a comedy, it deals with issues of leadership, justice and mercy and the audience are left questioning the resolution at the end of the play. 'Measure for Measure' was, however, a timely written piece that coincided with the arrival of King James of Scotland who inherited the throne of England. This PowerPoint and the associated worksheets enable students to evaluate each scene, each character and the issues and concepts raised in the play. The worksheets provide practical activities to engage students and the individual issues can be randomly accessed in the PowerPoint to address a specific focus.
