Hip Hop Shakespeare: Twelfth Night Resources

Fun, up-to-date teaching resources for modernising Shakespeare. Multimedia lesson includes video and audio. This activity involves students watching a TED talk by hip-hop artist Akala, who highlights links between Shakespeare and hip-hop. Students answer a few questions about this talk, then watch another video - a fictional rap battle between Shakespeare and Dr Seuss. Students then compose their own rap verse (as Shakespeare) to 'speak back' to Thing One and Thing Two.

    Great! I'm always on the lookout for new ways of breaking in to Shakespeare - I'm looking forward to trying this out with my year 10s. Thanks!
