Product Description
Shakespeare Translation Chart

-This is a three column chart that I use to help students pay close attention to Shakespearean language (it can be used with any of his plays).

♛ As they read, students record puzzling words or phrases from the text in the left-hand column. Then, when technology is accessible (either during class or for homework), I have students define the language they recorded via a website that I have linked to on the chart itself. They record this definition in the middle column. Finally, after learning the meaning of the word/phrase, students record their new thinking in the right side column.

♛ This chart helps students read and think critically during a reading of any of Shakespeare's plays, and I find it can also inspire paired and whole-class discussion in the English Language Arts classroom.

♛ This two page organizer is easily made into double-sided copies.
