Julius Caesar Newspapers

 

“Beware the ides of March.”  For those of you familiar with William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, you know that March 15 is the day that Julius Caesar was assassinated in the Roman Capitol by his fellow senators (despite being warned time and time again of something bad happening).  

Over the last two years, the ides of March have certainly been something to be cautious about!  After the flood of 2019 and the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, when the middle of March rolled around in 2021, I think we were all holding our breath, waiting for the next crazy occurrence to hit.  

The sophomores have been experiencing the complexity of Shakespeare’s language and witnessing the mind games that the characters play as they read Julius Caesar together.  As we work through the play, students have been creating newspapers to show their understanding of what is happening in each act.  They are to have two stories that deal with the play and a third story that can be about the play or about a fictional occurrence.  Here are some samples of their work from Act I and Act II.
