Description

Bring vitality and hilarity to your study of any of Shakespeare’s plays with these two 20-minute contests. In one version, students use William Shakespeare’s language to hurl insults, poetry-slam style. In the other version, students try to flatter and impress using unique combinations of Shakespeare’s honeyed words.

This 3-page PDF file includes one page of detailed instructions/suggestions on how to run a smooth, fun-filled contest and two pages of reproducible students handouts – one for insults, the other for flattery.
