This is a bundle that includes everything you need to help students understand Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice"!
I find that this is a really difficult (but yet super relevant, important) play to teach, given that it has three plot lines, so I've made these resources with that in mind.
Included in this bundle are:
-INTRO to the historical context behind the play
-“Tracking Down Themes”
(outlines the 3 main plots in the play to help students)
-Scene-by-scene questions for students
- “TWITTER” ACTIVITY / summary sheets
- “Exploring Themes” final oral presentation
**includes marking rubric that can be used with any oral presentation in English class
-BONUS SHEET! Generic “Tracking Down Themes”
I hope this helps!
It includes a lot of graphic organizers that students refer back to throughout the whole play.
NOTE - I don't give final tests for Shakespeare, so a final oral presentation is included instead. These are always insightful, meaningful presentations!
