Act V…the big finale!


  • RL.9-10.9. Analyze how an author draws on and transforms source material in a specific work (e.g., how Shakespeare treats a theme or topic from Ovid or the Bible or how a later author draws on a play by Shakespeare).

Learning Target: Students will finish reading Julius Caesar by reading Act V together.



Today we’re finishing up reading Julius Caesar by reading Act V! Yay! After this we’ve read the entire play! Which, personally, I think is pretty cool :)

Closing Session:

When we finish reading the play and it’s all said and done, I want you guys to write a little paragraph for me:

Do you think Brutus killed Caesar for selfish reasons (like he wanted power or didn’t like Caesar) or for altruistic reasons (he did it for the good of Rome)?


Different length reading parts based on readiness and interest.


Closing paragraph will be graded.
