Interest in Shakespeare waning?
This catchy folk-style song has been tailor-made to ensure students memorize quotes from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, whilst engaging with the play in a more exciting way; complete with sound file, lyrics sheet and worksheet; suitable for Years 7-11.
- Introduce at any point during your teaching of the play to keep students motivated.
- Perfect for starters and plenaries over a series of lessons.
- Suitable as homework and flipped classroom activity.
- Works well when pupils sing along to the song as a group during each lesson (e.g. in the last five minutes); they can really go for it in the chorus once they know it.
I wrote and recorded this song with good sound quality and, having used it with two of my classes, can vouch for its effectiveness in making all students learn some key quotes and giving them a very memorable learning experience.
The worksheet activities require pupils to go through the song line by line and also get creative themselves.
