Complete programme of work for Year 7/8 English, accompanying the Cambridge School Shakespeare edition of The Merchant of Venice.
The programme contains differentiated activities for strong and weak students and allows teachers to make use of technology through video-diary activities which students can complete using an iPad or mobile phone (this can, of course, be changed to a handwritten diary task).
The worksheets which correspond to tasks in the programme will take a mixed-ability class through an entire term of work on this brilliant play.
There is an additional images-only powerpoint on the representation of Jews in Medieval and Renaissance Europe which can be used to show how the issue of anti-Semitism began and continues today.
Tabular format makes the programme easy to map against a school term diary.
