Literature Study: (21) Hamlet – The Characterisation of Gertrude
William Shakespeare’s tragedy ‘Hamlet’ remains a celebrated text, still being performed worldwide on-stage and also enjoying a number of reimaged film versions. In our post-modern world of ‘false news’, ‘conspiracies’, ‘social media revenge’ and ‘corrupted politics’, Hamlet remains an essential text. I have taught this text a number of times and have used this specific (revised) resource to lead my teaching in class, as a distance learning material (Google Meet lessons), as a homework assignment and even as a tool of revision – all have worked well for the students.
This beautifully illustrated 14 slide PowerPoint lesson explores the characterisation of Claudius from a number of different perspectives. This dynamic lesson provides a number of short debate topics (encouraging the students to exchange ideas) and a number of structured written tasks. The study materials contained within this PowerPoint lesson provide approximately 2 hours teaching time in class. This is a complete resource with no additional work required from the teacher, enjoy!
