PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this two-part unit project, students work through the play focusing on one central topic (revenge, jealousy, friendship, race, etc.) and pulling out all references - major and minor - in the text that deal with their topic of choice.

Part 1: From there, students display the development of that theme on an illustrated timeline that they can produce manually (construction paper) or digitally (online web 2.0 tool). The timeline includes: direct quotations from the text, analysis and commentary about how this quotation relates to the development of the theme, and related images.

Part 2: Students have to find one article per act from the field of psychology related to their theme choice. They have to find articles that relate specifically to what is being revealed about the theme in each specific act, highlight the article for the ideas that connect to the play, and then write an comparitive analysis.

This project is very difficult to plagiarize and allows students to see the truly timeless characterization of people and relationships that Shakespeare so insightfully explored in his writing.
