PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit contains over 67 pages for nearly 50 daily lesson activities individually reviewing Shakespeare’s entire play. Most assignments follow the individual scenes within in each act. So the class can read one or two scenes and then complete an assignment. Or you can read the entire act and then use several key assignments to review major plot points or elements of the act. Honestly, there are too many activities to realistically be completed. But for my teaching style, I’d rather have too much then not enough. So, over the years, we’ve compiled numerous activities which give us the freedom to pick and choose which activity we would like to use for a particular scene or act based on the caliber of the class and the grade level. Some activities are straight forward and may serve as a general, quick review, while others are more involved and may be better accomplished in cooperative groups.
I adhere to the basic principal that each lesson should have a beginning, middle and an end. Keeping with this simple philosophy, most daily lesson begins with a “focus and review” assignment to generate discussion on the previous day’s material and orientate the students for the upcoming lesson. The heart of each lesson requires the students to continually refer back to the text to support their ideas or opinions. Through a variety of designs, the graphic organizers, worksheets, and chart fill-ins support close reading techniques as the students will be required to cite evidence from the text to support their answers and opinions. All lessons conclude with a “closure” activity which helps the students to review the key concepts discussed during the lesson and to offer a personal opinion about the material learned.
At times, I bring up the lessons on a smart-board or LCD projector and let the students copy a sketch of the daily chart. Other times, with the more intricate designs, I want to photocopy the worksheet for the students so that they may write directly on the assignment. With this in mind, I tried to maintain a balance between the visual appeal of each organizer and the practicality of making photocopies for any lesson. Since it’s a word document, you can adjust colors and fonts to suit your needs.
As with most graphic organizers or handouts, I have used these lessons in a variety of learning environments including: group work, partner or neighbor work or individual practice. Some lessons are extensive and may require more than one period or can be completed for homework. Each lesson also acts as a great quiz to assess any student’s comprehension for a particular chapter of the text. Since there are so many lessons for each act, I often have the students complete some of the basic worksheets independently for homework; this is turn acts as a great review and reinforces the day’s lesson.
