Some background info on the unit map I attached: This is a 12th Grade, 16 lesson unit (each lesson is 90 minutes) on Shakespeare’s The Taming of The Shrew. The unit’s focus is on societal expectations and stereotypes both in Shakespeare’s society as well as our own. I originally taught this unit last year in my student teaching placement, and I am currently re-teaching it to my seniors. I have revised this unit map to include the use of various media. This varies from simple pictures to start off a lesson and various movie clips from different directors, to having students use programs to create a comic book version of a scene to an iMovie movie trailer to advertsie their modern-day version of The Taming of The Shrew. These revisions were made with this particular assignment in mind, and I am looking forward to teaching this unit starting next week.
As the semester progresses, I plan to upload lesson plans and maybe even particular clips that I show my students. For the record, the movie clips I will be showing are from The Taming of The Shrew (Elizabeth Talylor), The Taming of The Shrew (Shakespeare Retold Version, which is pricy but fabulous, and clips can be found on youtube).
