1 The KING S Medium Term Plan English Y7 Learning Cycle 4 Programme Module Building on prior learning Future learning Shakespeare: The Merchant of Venice This module will build on students knowledge of Shakespeare s works and their social, cultural and historical context. Students will develop their analytical skills and consider the way Shakespeare uses language to explore his key themes of prejudice, wealth and relationships. Students will develop their writing skills through essay style responses and creative writing tasks, whilst in addition, the module provides opportunities for students to develop their speaking and listening skills, through shared reading of the play, class/group discussions and debate. In keeping with the English Literature Paper 1 Section A, students will write an essay on an extract from the play, drawing on their knowledge from other parts of the play. During learning cycle two, students were introduced to the history of the sonnet form and explored a range of Shakespeare s sonnets. Students developed their knowledge of linguistic and structural techniques and poetic devices, and considered how Shakespeare used these to achieve his intended effects. For their end of unit assessment, they wrote an essay response to Sonnet 18. Given that The Merchant of Venice is a set text on the AQA English Literature Specification (Paper 1: Section A), the module will help students develop their understanding of the play and key analytical and essay writing skills. Students will revisit Shakespeare s works (poetry and plays) in their GCSE studies.
