Because we are celebrating the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, each of the Batxillerat classes will work on a Shakespeare play. We will make a poster for each of the five acts of the play, that is, 5 posters per class, and 4 plays in total.

We will use the information you provide in the charts below to make our posters. These charts need to be completed by Friday 8th April (12 midnight)


Please start looking for pictures and drawings to decorate your posters. external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRh2hSnVfp9ZZSueZpKeRVC3piVVgFllwWkMigOu-QVm4hZQtn5SA

Procedure

  1. Get into 5 different groups, read your act and complete the chart. We need a group per act. In our class, that means 3-4 students per group.
  2. Use the photocopies of your act to complete your chart. You may need to read the whole play if you want to get a really good mark. The photocopies will be ready for you in the English Department.
  3. If someone in your group is not working, he does not deserve to be considered as a group member.

Assessment

The poster will amount to a writing exam mark, and this chart corresponds to 50% of your Shakespeare poster mark.

Borachio, another friend of Don John, arrives and informs Don John that he has overheard his brother and Claudio talking about how Claudio will marriageHero. He hides behind a wall and listenS to them discuss how Don Pedro would convince Hero and then give her to Claudio. Don John tells them to come with him so that he can figure out a way to annoy Claudio.
In this act an issue is that Claudio had recived honors althought he is so young, he has demonstrated the constancy and courage of a man twice his age.

Another moral issue is that if you love someone you have to go for it and gain the other person's love.

Passions involved: the hate/love relationship that Benedick and Beatrice have is so fun and exciting.
