My Shakespeare's Julius Caesar Curriculum Guide

No one knows the whole story surrounding Julius Caesar's death, but William Shakespeare's version of the event is certainly entertaining. A curriculum guide designed to accompany Julius Caesar makes the text even more engaging by including hands-on activities, in-depth discussion prompts, and plenty of opportunities for learners to take the stage. The guide covers elements of rhetoric, figurative language, and ancient Roman history.
