Reading the Play

Students read the play "Julius Caesar" by William Shakespeare. In groups, they identify the instances of similes, metaphors and personification. They use the Internet to compare and contrast the events in the play with historical facts. To end the lesson, they hold a mock trial to examine Brutus' innocence or guilt.
