The lesson plan is incredibly detailed, giving instructors
- Warm-up with optional extension
- Presentation connecting to common themes and concepts in science, social studies, health and religion classes
- Core activity based on presentation
- Scripted commentary to accompany presentation providing 'answers' and questions to encourage students' participation and critical thinking
- Checklist of skills to build in a unit with a Shakespearean play
