This philosophical chairs activity is a perfect way to kick off your Julius Caesar unit. My students always grumble when they hear Shakespeare, but when I started using this activity to begin the unit, they seemed much more excited about the content of Caesar. It was easier for me to get them excited when it became obvious that the issues in the play are still relevant.
You will need a projector in your classroom to be able to use this activity.
As seen in the example slide, all five of the slides have a statement and arrows pointing in opposite directions. Students walk to whichever side of the classroom represents how they feel about the statement: ie: Agree or Disagree. Students should move freely back and forth between sides as their opinions are swayed.
