Audience Participation



Activating Student Engagement with Shakespeare


 

 

 
 

 

Audience participation.

 

Are your students reluctant to respond to Shakespeare's text? Do the same volunteers read from the play over and over again? In this "Teacher to Teacher" clip, Tory Virchow shares how students can actively engage with Shakespeare's language, even if they aren't the ones reading it.

 

Try this activity in your classroom! Using speeches from Julius Caesar, divide students into supporters of Antony and Brutus and let the war of words begin.

 

Get the lesson plan for "Antony vs. Brutus" here.
