This is a bundle that includes everything you need to help students understand Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice"!I find that this is a really difficult (but yet super relevant, important) play to teach, given that it has three plot lines, so I've made these resources with that in mind...to keep

Product Description
This is a really basic character map that I give out for "The Merchant of Venice" - at the beginning of the unit.

I create a huge character wall that looks just like this, and we write up words/descriptions together as we read - and they update this sheet.

I find, given that this play has 3 main subplots (4 total - we eventually add in "The Ring Plot" after), it's easiest to divide it this way.
It helps them.

On their sheets, I also encourage them to draw hearts between characters who are in love, and connecting arrows to describe relationships (friends, etc.)

Also - I always make sure to put Shylock and Jessica on a different coloured piece of paper....you can get them to highlight them on this sheet...it sends a powerful message.
