My 7th and 8th graders are researching Julius Caesar and Pompey and the Roman Senate in preparation for reading Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. My 9th and 10th graders are about to beginning exploring themes in Much Ado About Nothing, and my 11th and 12th graders are about to begin reading Othello for the first time.
It's going to be a Shakespeare sort of term, with a dash of Oscar Wilde for good measure. What could be better?
That was a rhetorical question, but I just thought of an answer: lots and lots of rest, and then Shakespeare.
