In this class students will explore the play of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by the Bard, William Shakespeare. We will delve into the depths of its most memorable comic characters, to understand why writers use comedy and to what effect. We will go on a journey to understand Shakespeare’s language, and why and how he uses such full descriptive and sometimes unusual vocabulary, as well as looking at some of the major and minor themes throughout the play.
The skills students learn in this class can then be applied to other texts across their English studies and give them confidence in answering exam questions.
Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
This class is suitable for all English students in Years 9 and above or S3 and above to really push themselves and work on their comprehension of this Shakespeare classic.
Students will require a laptop with internet connection to view the class. A pen and notepad will also be required during the lesson.
