New Unit: Shakespeare's Julius Caesar
Having read Animal Farm by George Orwell, we will now turn our attention to reading one of Shakespeare's most popular and quoted plays, Julius Caesar.
During the unit, we will discuss the elements of a tragedy and discuss characterization using the variety of complex characters we meet in the play.
Most of the reading will be done in class. It is important that you follow along and take notes throughout the reading, using Post-It notes to mark important passages in the play. You can also expect some short homework tasks.
There are four assessments for this unit:
- Comparison paragraph
- News report
- Media assignment
- Unit test
