    • Learners (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This lesson is designed for ninth grade English students.

      • Each member of the group will complete their individual assignments on the following process pages.
      • The group, once they have created their individual assignments, will meet and practice their interpretive performance of the scene selected.
      • The group will perform their version of their scene in class.
      Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion The process instructions given to the students are listed below. You will need a computer lab for student use for at least an hour on two different class periods. This is necessary because the students will need to do research for this webquest. Overall, this project will take about a week with two days of one hour research time, and one class period totally devoted to presenting the class’s performances. Besides class time and computer availability, you will need to break up the class into groups of four. A group of five will work (just have two students share one role; however a group of three will not be able to complete the assignment. Continue to Process, pg 2

    • Resources (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page What you will need: In order to accomplish this assignment, your students will need time to work on it during class. I would make this a week long project. Starting with a day of introduction into this topic, a day for research, and then three more days where the students would be given time in class to work on their performance. Plus, you will need a class period to actually let the students perform their adaptions. Besides time, the students will need a copy of Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare and access to a computer. The websites that are listed in the webquest for the students to use a resources are listed below: Websites used to further understand Twelfth Night: Twelfth Night explained by Cliff Notes Twelfth Night explained by Spark Notes Websites used by the “Director”: http://shakespeare.about.com/od/studentresources/a/revels.htm http://www.answers.com/topic/english-renaissance-theatre?cat=entertainment http://www.luminarium.org/renlit/dramavenues.htm Websites used by the “Playwright”: http://www.bardweb.net/language.html http://www.bardweb.net/content/readings/twelfth/index.html http://www.britainexpress.com/History/Elizabethan_life.htm Websites used by the “Prop Constructor”: http://www.aboutbritain.com/articles/elizabethan-theatre.asp http://shakespearean.org.uk/elizthea1.htm http://angol.btk.ppke.hu/introduction/drama/elizabethan_drama_characters.html Websites used by the “Costume designer”: http://shakespearean.org.uk/elizthea1.htm http://www.onlineshakespeare.com/performances.htm http://www.cwu.edu/~robinsos/ppages/resources/Costume_History/elizabethan.htm Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion

    • Teacher Script (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This rewarding assignment; however since the students are given so much creative control, it is important to first “go over” or explain the play, Twelfth Night by Shakespeare. Ideally, it would be good to have read this play before giving the students this assignment. Before introducing the students to this webquest say something like this, “Class I will be breaking you up into groups of four where you will be allowed to work together and to create a product or theatrical performance together. You will all be responsible for a piece of the performance which I will explain in a minute, however, all of you are responsible for the finished product.” At this point refer the students to the Introduction and Task pages, go over the two scenes they will be asked to reproduce, and then refer them to the Process . Once you have explained the assignment, discuss how to bring Shakespeare into the present day. Suggest that Orsino could be a mafia boss or Olivia could be a mythical princess. Help them brainstorm adaptions of the two scenes by suggesting using different historical periods and professions for inspiration. For example, Orsino could be a brain surgeon, Olivia could be a beautiful patient and Viola could be an escaped convict. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
    • Conclusion (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This lesson is important because when ninth graders come into their first English class, they are new (usually), they don’t know what to expect, and they have been told horror stories about high school. This is a good activity to do early in the year because it allows students to work together, which hopefully will improve classroom rapport, as well as begin to give them experience with public speaking. Also, it gives ninth grade students a challenge, because Shakespeare is difficult; however, it also gives them a chance to be creative. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion flickr: cdnmusicdiva
