Twelfth Night: Thrusting Greatness Upon the Television 4 (Series of 4)

Teachers' Rating:
  1 rating

Twelfth Night

December 2010
Gregg Long teaches English at Lake Park High School, Roselle, IL

Plays/Scenes Covered
Twelfth Night 1.1 through 1.5
What's On for Today and Why

Having delved into the language, and experimented with utilizing the language in an alternative medium, students will now use their own skits to incorporate language from the play.

This session will take 15 minutes to review in class. More time may be needed to familiarize students with the technology or make the technology available to them, depending on the class needs.

What You Need

Folger edition of Twelfth Night
Available in Folger print edition and Folger Digital Texts

Overdubbing Handout

Access to video/audio editing software




Greatness Handout 3
What To Do

41. Using directions in Overdubbing Handout, students will dub over the skits created on Day 1 with language from Act 1 of Twelfth Night.

Love and Rejection: Use 1.1

Loss and Hope: Use 1.2

Sloppy and Foolish: Use 1.3.

Quarreling and Pleading: Use 1.4

Teachers may provide supplementary guidance/direction  (length, content, etc.)


2. Show each skit to the class as a pre-reading activity, or a follow-up, after the scene with which it corresponds.


3. After completing the unit, skits can be made available as potential review exercises, or shown as supplements to in-class readings. If successful, the exercise could be repeated for another act of the play.

How Did It Go?

Are students becoming familiar with Shakespeare's syntax, levels of meaning and overall direction?


This exercise can be used with any scene from Shakespeare providing the scene involves multiple speakers and is not overly static. This would be a good way to introduce students to key scenes in other plays outside the set curriculum.


If you used this lesson, we would like to hear how it went and about any adaptations you made to suit the needs of YOUR students.
