Schaufler, Alison Shakespeare for the Common Core: Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Julius Caesar Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists
Shakespeare for the Common Core (Recommended K-8th grade) We meet the Bard as he is working on his plays “Romeo and Juliet”, “Julius Caesar”, and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” is the central play of this production. It is a timeless story about two young teens who find love despite the prejudice and hatred of their families. Shakespeare’s words come alive with imagination, swordplay, and romance. Through this production, we hope to introduce the students to more of Shakespeare’s works while encouraging them to overcome prejudices in their own lives.
