Product Description
In this activity, students practice analyzing visual texts – specifically, various posters advertising productions of Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice – alongside traditional texts – specifically, the play itself.

This lesson is designed for use at the end of study of the play, after identifying and discussing the play’s themes and motifs. Students practice analyzing visual rhetoric as well as the literary qualities of the play, and then comparing/contrasting them; discussing and appreciating how visual texts make meaning in different ways than written ones; identifying themes and other literary devices and techniques; and creating their own visual representations of these in Merchant.

This activity has been tailored for use with Merchant of Venice but can easily be adapted to any other play.
