Hamlet – Mid-Term Assessment – Creative Writing Task William Shakespeare’s tragedy ‘Hamlet’ remains a celebrated text, still being performed worldwide on-stage and also enjoying a number of reimaged film versions. In our post-modern world of ‘false news’, ‘conspiracies’, ‘social media revenge’ and ‘corrupted politics’, Hamlet remains an essential text. 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 15 slide PowerPoint lesson leads the students through two guided pieces of creative writing strongly related to the text. The study materials contained within this PowerPoint lesson provide approximately 90 minutes teaching time in class. This is a complete resource with no additional work required from the teacher, enjoy!
