PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Common Core asks for an overwhelming amount of nonfiction reading in the classroom. As English teachers, we often struggle with keeping these nonfiction articles relevant to the content we already love to teach in the classroom.

This online editorial article titled "Kill Bill: Why we must take Shakespeare out of the classroom" is the perfect way to infuse some nonfiction reading in to any Shakespeare unit, be it Romeo & Juliet or MacBeth. The title of the article in itself is shocking and unexpected, immediately engaging students. The author explains that Shakespearean plays are meant to be seen, not read, and experienced on stage.

Following the article are 6 questions that promote close reading skills. They ask students to:

-Identify metaphors and explain
-Make inferences based on context clues
-Directly quote information to support claims
-Identify and analyze bias
-Make predictions

The last page also includes a teacher's key for your reference! Enjoy!
