EngageNY Grade 8 ELA: Module 2b, Unit 1: Building Background Knowledge: Understanding Shakespeare and Launching A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Collector: Ann V.

A Midsummer Night's Dream takes center stage in a collection of 18 resources that explore not only William Shakespeare's appeal but also the question of authorship of the plays attributed to him. Eighth graders participate in read aloud circles, examine Shakespeare's use of language, and make text to film comparisons. The end-of-unit assessment includes multiple choice questions about the play and has learners complete a graphic organizer comparing the film to the text.
