These visual note-taking worksheets are designed to be used in conjunction with the popular Crash Course Literature YouTube videos. They cover Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (season 1 episodes 2 and 3), Hamlet (season 2 episodes 3 and 4), sonnets 18, 116 and 130 (season 3 episode 4), and Macbeth (season 4 episodes 9 and 10).

The printable worksheets encourage active listening and spur students to engage in the plot, characters, themes, history, critical reception, Shakespeare's biographical information, and narrative techniques of each of the texts. Most episodes are about 11-12 minutes in length, so the mini-lessons could run for between 25-45 minutes depending on the class.

The notes contain a hyperlink to each video. Please note that some worksheets have more than one version to account for spelling differences between the USA and UK/Australia. Ensure you print the applicable worksheet.

What’s included:

1. Visual note-taking worksheets for seven episodes (black and white)

2. Teacher notes for seven episodes (not an answer key as answers will vary)

3. Hyperlink to the video for seven episodes (at the top of the teacher notes)

How to use:

1. Introduce the concept of visual note-taking (if your class is unfamiliar). Google (or visit the TPT store of) Math Giraffe for more information about the benefits of doodle notes.

2. Explain that you will be watching a short video about reading literature and that students are to use the worksheet to take notes. Explain that they are encouraged to write, highlight, draw, shade, and scribble while listening/watching.

3. After the video has played, use it as a starting point for discussion about the importance of reading literature and discuss what students have created/written as part of their notes.
