This Allusions to Shakespeare in Popular Culture lesson plan also includes:
Send your high schoolers on a scavenger hunt through popular culture (music, television, video games, movies) to find allusions to Shakespeare. They must each provide three to share with the class, and the one they present cannot have been discussed before! This assignment can span the entire year as learners find more -- and more esoteric -- examples. Emphasizes how much we miss if we aren't Shakespeare literate.
