Remember those "Choose Your Own Adventure" books from your youth? They are quite engaging for today's youth (especially reluctant readers!), but aren't as popular today.
I have written a short CYOA-type book based on Shakespeare plays. They are a very fun and engaging way for students to review the play.
Students take the role of a Shakespeare character (or two!) and make decisions the characters make in the actual play. The key to a happy ending (or as happy as a Shakespearean tragedy can end) is to make the EXACT SAME decisions the characters make in the play. All other decisions lead to (even more) tragic endings.
Note: Print the PDF in "Booklet" form.
[You are ANTONIO.]
Things are going well for you this year. You are rich as ever, with your ships carrying loads of goods all around the world. Soon, they’ll be back and you’ll enjoy profits like you’ve never experienced before.
And yet, you still feel that things aren’t quite as good as they could be. Your career as a merchant is taking off, and even though you have some very good, close friends, you have a nagging sadness that you can’t quite name.
