The Language of Shakespeare – Ideally Suited for Two Lessons (Grades 8-11)
PerfettoWritingRoom© is Happy to Provide a Shakespearian Two-Part Language Lesson, so that Instructors Can Teach Students about the Bard’s use of:
• Language that now has become common expression (idiomatic Expressions)
• Rhyming language
PerfettoWritingRoom© “The Language of Shakespeare” Introduction Comes in TWO Parts.
Part ONE of “The Language of Shakespeare” is a Fun Handout to Test just how much Students already know about Shakespeare’s contribution to the English language! It’s a nifty fill in the blank sheet with idiomatic expressions we use because of the Bard himself. How about that for taking the edge off your students’ nerves? Part One Comes with a handy KEY!
Part TWO of “The Language of Shakespeare,” allows the teacher to choose which scene from Shakespeare the students will tackle, and asks students to list line numbers where they have recognized sound and literary devices such as: metaphor, simile, alliteration, assonance, consonance, and rhyming language. This section additionally asks the students to identify the scene’s purpose and function within the larger framework of the play itself. Part TWO comes with a Handy Definition List at the End which serves as a REMINDER of the Literary Devices they will be looking for!! Feel free to use this as a review with your students before Activity Two!
