UPDATE: This bundle now includes two more BONUS lessons that can fit anywhere in the calendar. First, enjoy a little fun at the beginning or end of your unit with a guessing game featuring Shakespeare's lines and Taylor Swift's lyrics. Second, challenge your students to dig deep with a real-life Romeo & Juliet lesson, featuring an informational text article about two young lovers who died because of religious intolerance in their war-torn country.
All materials come with complete answer keys, included here in the page counts. This HUGE BUNDLE includes a total of 70 pages (PDF and Word) of rich content, plus 159 slides (Powerpoint and Prezi) of visually dynamic materials to “wow” your class. Please note that, due to the large file size, the Prezi materials come with links for online viewing/use. You do not need special software to run a Prezi.
Note: Some of these items (the scene-by-scene study guide handouts, Globe Theatre materials, Shakespearean Sonnet materials, Quizzers, Slam Contest, Act 2 Prologue, and Timeline) are sold separately at my store. No need to purchase these items separately if you grab this budget-priced bundle. The TONS of other items are not sold separately and can be purchased only as part of this bundle. There is some overlap in products featured here and in my A Midsummer Night's Dream bundle.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to help you decide the most budget-minded way to purchase materials from both unit plans.
