A 14 page Scheme of Learning focussing on appropriation and comparing The Taming of the Shrew with the film Ten Things I Hate About You. This is written primarily for the 10th Grade though it could be easily adapted for another curriculum or age group. The scheme is fully differentiated for ESL, Learning Difficulties and Gifted and Talented students. Resources included are: a detailed table connecting all the main elements of the play and film, graphic organisers to aid student thinking and planning, an essay / speech scaffold, a worksheet focussing on the conventions of Shakespearean comedy, at least 20 assessment task ideas, most of which focus on making connections and analysis skills. Assessment tasks take the form of analytical essays and speeches, debate and discussion tasks and creative writing. Six alternative interpretations of Katherina’s final speech are provided with a fun discussion and debate task as well as clear definitions and explanations of the concept of narrative appropriation and transformation. There is a two page introductory essay which explores the way each text reflects the context within which it was created.
