This version of Julius Caesar is designed for your struggling readers, English language learners, and Special Education students. I have abridged the play and added helpful notes, guided reading questions, and engaging visuals. After each shortened scene, there is a modernized translation that emphasizes themes, characterization, and simplifies the plot. Difficult vocabulary is underlined and space is provided for studentsto write definitions for each new word. Allusions are explained, questions conclude each scene, and, best of all, students can write directly on the text if you provided class photocopies of the scenes. I have used this for years in my own classroom and kids love it-- often even my strongest readers want copies in addition to their versions of the traditional (unabridged) play.
