This fun introduction to Shakespeare's hilarious play about marriage and the "battle of the sexes," will keep your students from thinking that Shakespeare is "dull and boring" or "too difficult to understand." Katherina, Bianca, and Petruchio are "described," and a little "foreshadowing" allows students to start drawing their own conclusions about what might happen in the play! A little "advice" about Shakespeare is given, and the final slide allows your students to embark on a fun, and possibly "controversial" discussion of what defines the ideal marriage partner! Designed as a first day assignment in a unit on the play, hopefully the presentation will whet your students' appetites for Shakespeare!
