Product Description
Introduce your middle schoolers (and even high schoolers) to the wonderful world or Shakespeare in this easy to use, aligned to common core standards unit on the comedy Twelfth Night.

Unit includes:
A three page packet designed to help students gather information and record data about each of the 5 Acts. The focus is on plot, setting, chronology, making connections and figurative language.

Character information sheet – students can gather information (or take notes as the class discusses the play) on each of the characters.

A Character quiz (answer key included) to assess student understanding of character’s role within the play.

A final project – using the large sized construction paper, students create a pamphlet that requires students to utilize the information gathered in each Act (sheets listed above).

A Final test (answer key included) that measures the standards. Multiple choice plus two essay questions.

Bonus: Shakespeare’s use of figurative language is amazing. In addition packet by Acts, I challenge students to find as many different types of figurative language throughout the play. If they can find enough to fill up the worksheet, I will give them a treat (sometimes a piece of candy, sometimes a few extra credit point).

In addition to the assignments above, I also utilize Twelfth Night to help students recognize the relevancy that Shakespeare has in today’s world. Depending on the grade you teach and the school’s policies, show the movie She’s The Man. I show this movie to my 8th grade honors classes and have them write a compare and contrast essay on how Hollywood extracted the ideas from Twelfth Night to create the movie. There are MANY comparisons and after completing this assignment, many students want to read more Shakespeare.
