9th Graders Perform Julius Caesar Scene

The 9th grade World Literature I classes, with Robert Schuster as their teacher, performed staged readings of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Act 3, Scene 1, i.e., the assassination of Julius Caesar by the conspiring Senators. Students had approximately 20 minutes to plan out their scenes and then perform them for their classmates. Students were asked to consider the blocking, tone, and pacing of the scene and how these things provide characterization that isn't explicitly explained in the text. Students were pretty excited to just hit each other with 'swords'! Check out photos of their scenes.
