    My Y9s set 4 and 5 both really engaged with this lesson: they found it so much fun to look for information in a variety of texts and we made it into a little competition>> awesome resource!

    This resource allowed me to introduce Shakespeare with energy and excitement to my Grade 9 students. Each slide gave me the space to share my knowledge and students to share their inquiries. They can't wait to continue. I am really happy that I chose to download this lesson. Thanks.
