Tired of hearing groans when you tell your class you're going to be reading Shakespeare? Want to ease your students' anxiety about being able to understand Shakespeare?
Use this lesson to show your students that chances are they already use some of Shakespeare's own language in their every day life or at the very least, have heard it being used by others.
This short lesson/activity introduces students to 25 of Shakespeare's phrases and words that he is credited with first putting into a published piece. Once students see that Shakespeare isn't too difficult they will, hopefully, be more open to attacking the text.
There is an optional assignment that can be given to students as well to increase their engagement with the language.
