Lesson 4 – Act 2 Scene 1
The lesson starts with a 3 minutes challenge, where the students need to find as many new words as possible with some given letters. Then, we will watch the performance of the Royal Shakespeare Company and follow the script with our text at the same time, to discover this scene and understand what is happening. We will look closer at the characters of Titania and Oberon, we will discuss their relationships and the reason of their fight. The students will then comment the adaptation of the play by the Pacific Northwest Ballet and compare the acting and the dancing. After this, the lesson focuses on the red flower; the students will rewrite an extract of the play into modern English to understand its magical powers. We will then look at the ballet performance again, and the students will identify the different characters on stage. How/Why can we recognise them? Finally, they will express their personal opinion in a persuasive writing exercise, to explain what they have prefered, the play or the ballet.
Homework – writing task to predict what is going to happen in the next scene.
This lesson can be easily adapted to be a cross-curricular activity with a Dance teacher.
