PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students need practice deciphering Shakespeare? This activity can help. It challenges students to translate Shakespeare's language from A Midsummer Night's Dream into their own words. Students are given passages from the text and asked to paraphrase/summarize them. Passages are separated by acts, and all five acts are included, as well as an answer key. Examples are also included to help students get started.

To spice things up, I've done some fun things with this where the students can put their own "spin" on the translations. For example, students have written answers imagining how today's teenager would say the passages using modern phrases and slang. It adds some creativity, and the students have fun with it.
