In the guise of a Glogster



Teachers' Rating:
  0 ratings


New York, Delacorte Theater, Central Park. Henry V; Measure for Measure. Playbill, summer 1976

 
March 2011
 
Jessica L. Speck teaches English at Winston Churchill High School, Potomac, MD
 

Plays/Scenes Covered

The example for this lesson was created for the character of Pompey from Measure for Measure, but it could be applied to any play.


 
What's On for Today and Why

Students will use multiple Web 2.0 applications to demonstrate understanding of a character from one of Shakespeare's plays. This assignment utilizes a number of existing free Web 2.0 applications that have grown rapidly for educational use in the last few years. It can easily be adapted to use fewer (or different) applications, but Glogster (an online interactive poster) does work as a good platform for any Web 2.0 apps your students use.

 

This assignment will take 3 class periods.
