Twelfth Night, or What You Will
 
What's On for Today and Why
In this second of three lessons, students will apply and differentiate the terms Mistaken Identities, Misrepresentations, and Changes of Mind in the play by way of a scavenger hunt. When they find deception in the text, they will be able to defend their interpretation of it.

What To Do

When students have a good understanding of Twelfth Night's three noticeable modes of deception, the teacher will gather them together in groups to go on a scavenger hunt through the text to find examples of each type of deception.

 

The teacher should create a data sheet for students that cites the Act, Scene, and page number, and includes a description of the deception, names of the deceivers and the deceived, and the believed causes of the deception (see Mistaken Identities Lesson 2 of 3 below).  The teacher might assign specific groups to find specific deceptions -- mistaken identity, misrepresentation, or changes of mind.

 

The teacher should remind students that there are elements of deception that are evident in more than one type of deception.  Therefore, their examples may overlap, so disagreements should be delivered in a respectful way, perhaps even using Shakespearean Insults or "What you will" to respond to those disagreements.

 

 


 
How Did It Go?
The clarity and comprehensiveness of the student data sheet (see Mistaken Identities Lesson 2 of 3 -- Data sheet sample) could easily be measured with a rubric.
 


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.
