Julius Caesar Obituary & Shakespeare Analysis Worksheet
This wonderful, cross-curricular assignment has students read Mark Antony's famous funeral oration from Shakespeare's play "Julius Caesar" and answering a set of CCSS-aligned reading analysis questions.
Students then write their own obituary or funeral speech based on facts they learned about Caesar in class. I love having the students read these out loud in class and try to make their's as poetic as they can while also including historical facts. It makes for a fantastic class activity!
An answer key is included for your convenience.
This makes for an excellent assignment after using the Julius Caesar and the End of the Roman Republic PowerPoint Lesson
Both of these resources can also be downloaded as part of the larger, discounted Roman Empire Unit Bundle
