A resource kit which contains the following:
1. Starting Points
In a play where words play upon words, here are some starting points!
2. The Battle
The play is peppered with contrasts, no more so than that of the battle. Two tasks to thoroughly analyse this concept.
3. Style - Comparing John Donne's poetry and 'Wit' with the use of metatheatre
Six different points for students to choose from to start their own analysis of how metatheatre applies to 'Wit'. A good task to use to start introducing inquiry learning into your classroom, or divide the tasks out to students for differentiation learning.
4. E.M Ashford and Jason Posner
What role do these two minor characters play? And what do they reveal about the wider context of the play?
5. A Moral Dilemma
An empathy styled task where students look at the play in an objective way initially and the morality issues it deals with, and resonate their own answers and opinions through a series of guided questions.
