You have a choice of home learning tasks today. Choose the one that is most appropriate, yet challenging, for you:
- What is iambic pentameter? Write your definition in language that another Year 10 student will understand.
- Where in Macbeth does Shakespeare use iambic pentameter? Find examples and show how iambic pentameter is being used.
- Why did Shakespeare use iambic pentameter? Consider characterisation, effects of rhythm in the dialogue, and other reasons.
This task should take more than twenty minutes for a developed response, therefore I have set the deadline for next Tuesday and will not be setting a home learning in tomorrow’s lesson.
