Just a brief post to share a couple of important revision resources.
Firstly, I’ll share the knowledge organiser for Romeo and Juliet (download here). This gives you an outline of the plot, key characters, key themes and some key literary devices employed by Shakespeare
You can use this document to create flashcards and complete self-quizzes. Remember, you must have a good knowledge of the plot so you can discuss the context of quotations, character’s actions and the structure of the play.
Also, this sheet with key quotations is really useful for revision. (Key Quotes Sheet)
There are several ways you could use this to revise:
- Focus on one theme in Blood Brothers. Use the key quotes document to select quotations which link to this theme.
- Look at a past paper (there are lots here) Use the key quotes sheet to make an essay plan for this question.
- Create flashcards for key characters, selecting 3-4 key quotations for each character. Make sure you elaborate on each quotation, explaining why it is important.
- Use the sheet to make mind maps on each character.
