  1. 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...to keep

Product Description
This is the main themes sheet that I give when studying "The Merchant of Venice"

It's a chart with 5 BIG IDEAS from the play (mercy VS revenge, love and friendship etc.) and they are asked to fill out:
-connections to the characters/plot in the play
-what is Shakespeare trying to teach/tell you about this big idea?
-make a connection (text to self/text to text/text to world)

A lot of students misunderstand theme - they think it's just the "big idea" (love and friendship, for example)....this really gets them to look at what the LESSON behind these big ideas are.

NOTE - at the bottom of the handout, it asks them for the opinion on "TO BAN OR NOT TO BAN" - it's just a fun way to get them talking about the play...because a lot of schools ban "The Merchant of Venice"
