Julius Caesar, takes 20 minutes to perform. Students love the drama and importance of the story, which is made clear through the kid friendly language. I encourage teachers to double or triple cast the major parts. allowing many students a chance to play lead parts. Choosing low readers for major roles will improve their fluency and confidence. Practice this play throughout the year and perform it in the Spring. Practice can be done any time of day, with whole class or small groups. The play can be used to teach character traits, vocabulary, story development, and is a fun bonding experience for the class.
