This is an entire Unit's worth (one full marking period) of in-depth lesson planning around Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. As an avid Shakespeare scholar, these lesson plans have a special place in my heart. The Grade 10 ELA Common Core standards are addressed passionately and with purpose - in ways that promote higher-order thinking, inference, and content-to-world connections embedded in real life meaning. Students must be investigators of text throughout this Unit that demands critical analysis and evidence from multiple perspectives. This Unit that began just after the holiday break fittingly concluded on the Ides of March.
