This means finding the most important scenes from each act and still making sure the kids get the whole story. I’m not sure how to do this. Plus I have to make sure they still learn : Soliloquy, monologue, pun tragedy, comedy, aside, chorus, farce, oxymoron, foil, paradox, comic relief, tragic hero, stage directions, dialogue, dialect, dramatic point of view, dramatic irony. Ugh.
I technically could take a month with it, but I’d like to have two weeks of EOC review/practice. These kids are going to pass that test, dang it!
You can read the whole play out loud in two weeks. People do actually watch it in one sitting. ;)
As you read, then you say: ’Okay, this is an example of_______” and make a word wall, with photocopied pieces of the text next to it.
GWALP, you make me want to teach high school English. Mostly Shakespeare. Like whoa.
