A Level Literature: (20) King Lear – End of term Assessment (Guided Essay Writing) William Shakespeare’s tragedy ‘King Lear’ remains a celebrated text, still being performed worldwide on-stage and also enjoying a number of reimaged film versions. 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 38 slide PowerPoint lesson provides a step by step guide in A Level essay writing, working around the question: ‘King Lear is often referred to as a ‘tragic hero’. In what ways does Lear conform to the conventions and traits of the archetypal ‘tragic hero’?’ The study materials contained within this PowerPoint lesson provide approximately 4 hours teaching time in class. This is a complete resource with no additional work required from the teacher, enjoy!
