Teaching Shakespeare to middle school students isn't the easiest lesson to cover. Modern Shakespeare takes out the difficult language while leaving the themes and humor that Shakespeare is known for. Using Modern Shakespeare in your classroom is a great way to get the whole class involved---and tackle a difficult lesson in minimal time!
"Julius Caesar" tells the story of a king who, despite being warned, walks into a trap and is overthrown by his conspirators. Greed, envy and remorse are themes that can be found in this play---wonderful discussion topics for whole classroom conversational learning.
