Product Description
A Midsummer Night's Dream, one of Shakespeare's most well-loved plays, is notable for its relationships between women and men. Through this lesson, students will look at how girls and boys are treated differently in current society, and they will reflect on how this relates to the characters in the novels. Are expectations and treatment different for women and men in the novel? For mortals and fairies?
This includes:
--A PowerPoint to guide the lesson, which includes slides for most all of the following (so if paper is at a premium, no need to print the included handout)
--A handout for students to use--can be used alone or with the PowerPoint
--A teacher guide with links to the video and articles

Lesson covers:
--A short warm-up activity to have students consider three characters' most familiar traits
--A chart of descriptors for students to consider which are considered masculine, feminine, both, or neither
--A link to four articles on popular news websites for students to read and analyze for differences in treatment or expectations for women and men
--A link to a TedEd talk where a famous author shares her experiences in a world where expectations are different for women and men
--Two closing questions to relate all the gender work back to the classroom and Shakespeare study

For this lesson, teachers will need a computer and projector to share three minutes of the TedEd talk and a way of distributing articles (either students use their own devices or teacher-made copies printed from the website).

This lesson took one hour-long class for my students.
