The language of Shakespeare can be confusing and challenging to new readers, but the stories are wonderful, and A Midsummer Night's Dream is probably the most silly, romantic and hilarious of all of his plays. In this class, we will read together and students will gain the skills to find the play not only understandable, but laugh-out-loud, wipe-a-tear-from-your-eye entertaining.

Students will learn the story of Midsummer Night's Dream and truly understand Shakespeare's language, his poetic style, and his insights into human nature.
For more than 20 years, I have been a senior level English and Writer's Craft teacher where I have taught a number of Shakespearean texts to students from grade 7 to 12. I have a bachelor's degree in English from Trent University in Ontario, Canada and a bachelor's of Education from the University of Western Sydney in Australia.
Guided questions based on the material read in class. Occasional self-directed reading at home. An optional project at the end of the class to re-write a scene from the play into modern English and perform it in our last class together.
A PDF text of the play as well as a package of guided reading questions will be provided by the teacher.
Students are assessed informally each class through questioning and discussion. The optional final project will provide an opportunity for a more formal assessment in the form of a letter grade based on a clearly articulated rubric.
3 hours 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The teacher will provide a PDF of the text of the play that students can view or print if they would like a hard copy.
