Monday - Today the students will have a substitute, as I will be out of school. The students will read, annotate, and answer questions pertaining to an article on the life of Julius Caesar. After completing the article packet, the students should look over and start crafting their associative tools for the vocabulary quiz that is coming up. If all of their work is complete, the students may read or work on homework quietly.
Tuesday - DO NOW: Which character from the story appeals to you the most so far? Why? We will then analyze questions from Act I in groups. Are the conspirators looking out for the people and motivated by their public duty or do they only care about themselves? What do you think? Begin reading Act II as a class. Continue watching movie.
Wednesday/Thursday - DO NOW: What goes into your decision making process? For major decisions, do you spend time thinking about the causes and effects or just go with your gut and see what happens? Give an example of a specific time. Finish reading Act II, Scene I. Decision, Reason, and Possible Outcome worksheet with a partner. Share out. Watch movie.
Friday - Reading/vocab quiz on Julius Caesar. The students may use associative tools on the quiz. After the short quiz, the students will assign out parts and continue reading. Watch movie, if time.
