The challenge: present an entire act of a play in 60 seconds.
Make Shakespeare presentations more fun! This assignment requires students to work as a team, choose important lines, scenes and character reactions in order to portray part of a play. At the end, students will have a thorough understanding of their Act.
I'm pretty strict with the 60 second limit (5 second grace period under/over) before I deduct marks. This means that presentations are well rehearsed, and memorized. Students who dislike presentations are more comfortable because they have up to 20 seconds of dialogue. This download is set up for Romeo and Juliet, but I have used it for Macbeth, Hamlet, Othello, Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
