The Tempest quote bank

Collaborative activities around a bank of key quotes from The Tempest.

These activities are suitable for collaborative pair or group work, to generate real opportunities for talk in preparation for a piece of extended writing using the Point Example Explanation (PEE) approach.

The activities in this pack are based around twenty-four key quotes from The Tempest. It is geared towards practising the academic language required for extended writing, using the PEE technique. The pack can be used in conjunction with other EAL Nexus resources on The Tempest, including those which include scene-by-scene summaries in accessible English, flashcards of key words and DARTs activities, e.g. The Tempest Act 1. The quotes used are the same as those in the The Tempest Connect 4 resource.
