Looking for a powerful lesson to add visual art and challenging nonfiction to your unit on a Shakespeare play?

If your students are studying Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, MacBeth, Julius Caesar, or just about any other of Shakespeare’s plays, they’ll be discussing the theme of revenge. So it is essential that students have a context in which to read these stories.

When you teach with this resource you will:

inspire your students with the story of a resilient and remarkable female artist who was largely ignored for hundreds of years

incorporate multiple learning styles with cooperative group work, visual art, quick writes, and full-class discussions

• engage your classes in a critical thinking by using the ready-to-go discussion questions

easily and quickly prepare this compelling lesson by using the handouts and links provided here

Resources included in this lesson:

“Judith and Holofernes” a painting by Artemisia Gentileschi

“Of Revenge” an essay by Francis Bacon

Your students will remember this innovative and eye-opening lesson for a long time.
