Shakespeare has made many plays that entertain a wide range of audiences, from commoners in the street, to UCAS students, to the Queen of England. UCAS students have been given the opportunity to read two Shakespeare plays in this years English 10 class. This semester we are focusing on the Merchant of Venice. A play which covers the topics of justice, and mercy, by integrating them into a tale of deceit, love, and betrayal.
In place of a test, the UCAS sophomores have been doing projects to demonstrate their knowledge of this play. They were given the options of a movie, storybook, diorama, sportscaster, a song, or just about anything that would prove you studied the book and understood it. Along with the project you also had to do a report about the project you did, and question about how the scenes you presented were important to the rest of the play.
