Product Description
After reading Julius Caesar, put students in small groups and have them wrestle with the question, "What's the point?" Working together on google slides, students must generate their claim-- what they think the point of reading Shakespeare, specifically Julius Caesar is. After stating their claim, students must work together to find research (at least 3 sources) to prove their claim, they must add commentary, and works cited. As an added bonus slide, students are asked to cast a modern day version of Julius Caesar.

What's great about this activity is that it reiterates the process for Argumentative/Persuasive writing without having the word "essay" anywhere near it-- also, students get to collaborate in order to complete the assignment.

This usually takes my 10th grade Pre-AP students two 50 minute class periods.
