Literature Study: (0) ‘Measure for Measure’ – Introduction to the Text

William Shakespeare’s ‘Measure for Measure’ remains a significant text in a post-modern world, where the prosecutions of Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein have shed fresh light onto gender inequality and sexual abuse. This detailed introductory lesson functions as a dynamic bridge into the text through a series of structured writing exercises and group discussions. I have taught this text many times and have used this specific resource to lead my teaching in the classroom, as a distance learning/homework assignment and even as a tool of revision – all have worked well for the students.

This beautifully engaging 27 slide PowerPoint lesson includes a detailed biography of William Shakespeare, a starter activity, structured research and questions on the themes contained within the play, focus questions connected to the characterisation of key constructs, an extension task, a homework assignment and a plenary. This is a complete resource (approximately 2-3 hours teaching time) that requires no additional labour from the overworked teacher. Enjoy.
