Literature II - Julius Caesar

Students in Literature II are wrapping up their unit of study on Shakespeare's tragedy, Julius Caesar. As an extension to their analysis of the Ides of March, students exchanged letters with the 12 YOC cultural studies class writing from either Brutus' or Caesar's perspective. The letters were then displayed on a bulletin board highlighting the assassination and betrayal of Julius Caesar. In addition, Literature II students analyzed the rhetorical appeals used in Caesar's funeral speeches delivered by Brutus and Antony. Students were unanimous in determining that Antony's speech to the Roman plebians was far more effective than Brutus' speech.
