PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this Common Core aligned activity, students closely read Act I, scene ii of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, annotating the text as they extract insights about key characters. Using their discoveries, they work to come up with character traits for each, supporting with evidence from the text.

This engaging, rigorous activity is a great way to get students to dig deep into a complex text while analyzing the development of main characters. Works well as a group and/or individual activity.

Standards Covered:

• CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.R.1 Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
• CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.3 Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.
• CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.R.10 Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.
