Act V…the big finale!

Standard:

  • 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.

Activator: 

 

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)?

Differentiation:

Different length reading parts based on readiness and interest.

Assessment:

Closing paragraph will be graded.
