Are you looking for a creative way to assess students' understanding of two or more Shakespearean plays? Look no further!

This assignment requires students to demonstrate their understanding of characters, themes, and conflicts of Shakespeare's classic plays.

Students are required to propose an original mash-up of these two plays that would be unique and suitable for a Netflix/Hulu original TV series. Who wouldn't love the reality series: King of All Kings, featuring Julius Caesar, Henry IV, and supporting characters all fighting for the crown as the complete honor challenges to stay on the island they are hoping to reign following the series finale.

Materials include: Assignment sheet, rubric, real-world examples students are familiar with, and a Google Slides template for their proposal that breaks down all of the required elements

Introduce a topic; organize complex ideas, concepts, and information so that each new element builds on that which precedes it to create a unified whole; include formatting (e.g., headings), graphics (e.g., figures, tables), and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension.
Analyze multiple interpretations of a story, drama, or poem (e.g., recorded or live production of a play or recorded novel or poetry), evaluating how each version interprets the source text.
Analyze how an author’s choices concerning how to structure specific parts of a text (e.g., the choice of where to begin or end a story, the choice to provide a comedic or tragic resolution) contribute to its overall structure and meaning as well as its aesthetic impact.
Analyze the impact of the author’s choices regarding how to develop and relate elements of a story or drama (e.g., where a story is set, how the action is ordered, how the characters are introduced and developed).
Determine two or more themes or central ideas of a text and analyze their development over the course of the text, including how they interact and build on one another to produce a complex account; provide an objective summary of the text.
