It’s time for Shakespeare! Let’s start with a bit of introduction to the man and his time. First a short video. And another from my favorite, Mr.Sato.
Open the Globe 360 app on the iPad. Tour around for a bit. You can also take this Interactive tour (This does NOT 😦 work on iPads). Here is a Video tour with better visuals. If you don’t have the app on your iPad, use the links above or do a video search for “Globe theater interactive tour“.
Now write about it. Pretend that you are a Globe Theater patron in 1600 and you have come to the theater to see a play by Shakespeare. Describe the theater using sensory details. Describe the action around you and what you think about it. Be creative and stay in character.
Midsummer Night’s Dream- Set up character chart. There are 3 categories of characters: the Nobles, the Rustics, and the Fairies. Create a graphic organizer with the characters in the play. Divide them into the three categories. You may use paper or the iPad for this.
Setting the scene and doing a bit of reading. Begin Act 1– Character introductions of the Nobles.
