World Lit: Early Release Art Project!

Standard:

  • ELAGSE9-10RL6 Analyze a particular point of view or cultural experience reflected in a work of literature from outside the United States, drawing on a wide reading of world literature.

Learning Target: Today, students will generate a creative project. Students should be artistic, and because we will decorate the classrooms with these, I want students to be proud of their work. We will put Julius Caesar into a much more visual context.

Opening Session: Intro to this BBC production of Julius Caesar, which we will watch while being all artistic.

Today, we’re having fun! I would like everyone to make a dagger, like the ones used to stab Caesar. You can be as creative with this as you like, but there’s one requirement: Write a quote from the play on the blade of the dagger. This can be a quote from the conspirators that killed Caesar, a quote from Caesar himself, or maybe a quote from someone that tried to warn Caesar about the plot against him. Make sure you include your parenthetical citation!!!

After your dagger is done, you’re welcome to work on finishing your Bubble Map! YAY! We’ll get these laminated and everything, and then I’ll put pictures up on the blog to show you guys off. Also, some of my more schnawesome artists will be drawing Caesar himself!

Here’s some inspiration pics of daggers:
