PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a project I designed to introduce my Grade 9 students to Shakespeare before reading A Midsummer Night's Dream, but it can be used as a pre-reading activity for any Shakespeare play. This was their first experience studying a Shakespeare play, so I wanted to give them some background experience on Shakespeare, his works, his contemporaries, and Elizabethan England.

It is a project designed for groups to brainstorm what they already know about Shakespeare, and explore a question that they are more interested in. They will go through a process of asking questions and exploring resources to find the answers - all leading up to a class presentation.

Included:
-The assignment outline
-Pre-exploration brainstorm questions
-Planning pages
-Self and Peer Assessment
-Suggested marking sheet
