Rewriting Shakespeare

This Rewriting Shakespeare lesson plan also includes:

Have your learners play around with Shakespeare's language. In this plan, small groups examine and rearrange soliloquies from Othello, noting how the language changes and morphs. All groups have a chance to change each soliloquy, making each a truly collaborative product. For homework, they take the unused lines and compose poems. While not the most academically challenging or clear lesson plan, this activity familiarizes pupils with Shakespeare.
