PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

As English teachers, we all love Shakespeare. Unfortunately, we can't always say the same for our students. This assignment is aimed at getting students to interact with a speech from a Shakespeare work on their own. By paying attention to the words on the page and processing not only what is being said but how it is being said, they will hopefully gain a better understanding of how to read and interpret Shakespeare.

For this project, students will record themselves doing a "dramatic" reading of a Shakespearean speech. Then, they will add background music and sound effects to really try and capture the spirit of the speech. They'll have to think creatively here, but you'll be surprised at what they come up with. In addition, before they ever record, they will do a bit of critical thinking about the speech by using the "speech analysis worksheet" provided in this packet.

This project will work for any Shakespeare play-- Julius Caesar, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet... the sky's the limit!
