Who wrote it: rapper Tupac Shakur or William Shakespeare? Your students will have so much fun trying to decide whether the quote is from a Shakespeare play or lyrics from Tupac (aka 2Pac)! You can use the interactive bulletin board display OR the student handouts and presentation as an anticipatory set before ANY Shakespeare unit to get your students excited about and interested in Shakespeare.
The zipped bundle includes a 42-page PDF for the interactive bulletin board, a 2-page PDF student handout, a 2-page teacher answer key, and a 122-slide presentation (PDF format - NOT editable). The presentation and the interactive bulletin board both include the answers with details about the play or song that is quoted.
As a bonus, the handout includes a brief bio about both authors. It's a great way for your students to have a POSITIVE attitude about Shakespeare. It also helps them see that the lines of his play are very much like rap lyrics, which helps students to understand the meaning.
