Product Description

A FUN Shakespearean one-off poetry lesson (with poetry/creative writing extensions, as well).

As you know, Shakespeare’s tragedies are very dark; they showcase the worst aspects of human nature. So this is a light, amusing Shakespearean poem to break and ease the mood. Good this resource is appropriate for any Shakespearean unit.

Contained herein:

  1. A sixteen-slide PowerPoint.
  2. Five pages in worksheets

The PowerPoint offers a "slow reveal" of this amusing Shakespearean version of "The Hokey Pokey" written by Jeff Brechlin of Potomc Falls, Maryland in 2003; he was the winner of a contest put on by The Washington Post. (This poem, it should be noted, is freely available at <https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/the-style-invitational-goes-viral/2013/02/28/74a76fac-77a3-11e2-95e4-6148e45d7adb_story.html>). After the slow reveal, there are provided three creative (extension) writing prompts to which class can respond.

The Worksheets contain one page for the entire class to do individually or in pairs with a one-page Answer Key; and then three further pages that can be divided amongst the class, or used as three poetry/creative writing extension activities for the entire class.
