Discussion and Supporting Materials

Thought starters

  1. See how two elementary teachers make sense of Shakespeare with a variety of novel activities. What examples do you see of students finding the meaning of literal and non-literal phrases?
  2. How does using small parts of a play make it more manageable for students?

I liked how you chunked the text and selected the lines for pairs and groups. (Shakespeare in gr 3-5) Question: Do you tell them the story or read a simplified version to them?
