  1. “Beware the Ides of March”: William Shakespeare and Julius Caesar Designed by Paige Fountain A Web Quest for 10th English Home ~ Introduction ~ Task ~ Group Process 1 ~ Group Process 2 ~ Reporter ~ Reporter’s Resources~ Architect ~ Architect’s Resources ~ Psychic ~ Psychic’s Resources ~ Doctor ~ Doctor’s Resources~ Group Evaluation ~ Individual Evaluation ~ Conclusion ~ Credits 1 ~ Credits 2 ~ Learning Objectives ~ Curriculum Standard ~Teacher Page

  2. Introduction • Think about a few themes or aspects of some of your favorite movies. What did they entail? Suspense? Conspiracy? Betrayal? Deception? Shame? MURDER?? • Despite William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar’s original publication in the late sixteenth century, the play contains all of these elements and more!! Do you think this would fit in with modern entertainment?? • Written in 1599, William Shakespeare bases his drama on the historical Julius Caesar and sets his play in 44 B.C. (Didn’t think society was brutal back then? Just keep reading!) • Julius Caesar reigned over the Roman Empire from 67 B.C. to 44 B.C. until he was assassinated by a group of conspirators. Although it is set in ancient Rome and was written during the Renaissance, the play holds several themes that are still present in modern-day entertainment, as well as modern society. • So, what does Julius Caesar have in common with today's world? That's your job--to find out and present similarities between Caesar's world and our own.

  3. Task • A group of concerned citizens in our small community does not think we should read William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar. These individuals believe that Julius Caesar has nothing to do with our lives today and that we should focus on reading more modern works. Your group's job is to convince these people at the next town council meeting that Julius Caesar is worth leaving on the 10th grade reading list! • You should use the resources provided on this web quest, as well as your own personal knowledge to complete this task. At the end of your research, your group will create and present a PowerPoint presentation for the town council meeting, which, surprisingly, will look identical to Mrs. Fountain’s classroom!! It is your job to prove that Julius Caesar is just as relevant to today’s students as any other modern writings of today. You will also turn in an assignment that is specific to the individual role you choose. You will receive two grades: One for your group's PowerPoint presentation and one for your individual assignment. • Through this web quest, you will be able delve deep into the life of Julius Caesar and the historical background of the play. You will be working individually at your own pace, choosing what most interests you, while also working in a group to reach a consensus on some of the more dominant themes of the play that still persist today!! • Enjoy diving into the Wonderful World of William Shakespeare!!

  4. Process • Mrs. Fountain will divide you into groups of 4. Each student within the group will have a specific job. You will draw straws to decide who is the reporter, the architect, the psychic, and the doctor. Each person will have a specific job to complete. • Read the specific expectations and responsibilities of the roles on the following pages: • The Reporter • The Architect • The Psychic • The Doctor • As you work individually, make sure to look for themes within the information that still resonate in today’s world. Make a list of these themes, and complete a Venn Diagram that help you to organize the similarities and differences between Julius Caesar’s day and modern-day society. • The Venn Diagram will be used as the basis for your PowerPoint presentation for the town council meeting.

  5. Process (cont.) • You should work on your individual role within the group first and simply keep an individual list of commonalities in your personal Venn Diagram. Once everyone has finished with his or her specific roles, take the information that you gathered concerning the similarities between Julius Caesar’s world and modern-day society to compile a PowerPoint presentation to present at the town council meeting. • REMEMBER: You want the community members to see how intriguing and exciting Julius Caesar is, as well as how the themes of 44 B.C. are still relevant today!! • Try to include pictures, sounds, videos, and any other types of media in order to get your point across to the members of the community!! • HAVE FUN!!

  6. The reporter • Have you ever heard of the phrase that history repeats itself? It is your job to prove that this is true!! As you delve into the life and into the play of Julius Caesar, you will learn that Julius Caesar was assassinated. When a political figure is assassinated, it can be for a variety of reasons, including change, stability, or turmoil. • It is your job to research Julius Caesar’s assassination and the assassination of one other famous political leader. You will then compare the two assassinations by writing a 500-750 word headline article for the Roman Tribune. In the article you should discuss at least three similarities between the two assassinations. • Make sure to document and cite any and all outside information!! • In addition to researching the assassination of Julius Caesar, choose one of the following political figures to research, as well: • Abraham Lincoln • John F. Kennedy • Martin Luther King, Jr. • Robert Kennedy • See Reporter Resources for websites to research Home ~ Introduction ~ Task ~ Group Process 1 ~ Group Process 2 ~ Reporter ~ Reporter’s Resources~ Architect ~ Architect’s Resources ~ Psychic ~ Psychic’s Resources ~ Doctor ~ Doctor’s Resources~ Group Evaluation ~ Individual Evaluation ~ Conclusion ~ Credits 1 ~ Credits 2 ~ Learning Objectives ~ Curriculum Standard ~Teacher Page

  8. The architect • As the architect, it is your job to research examples of Roman architecture from the time of Julius Caesar that are still places of tourism visitation today. • You need to find at least three examples of architecture from Ancient Rome that people can still see today. (Remember, the members of the community need to be reminded that Caesar’s world is still relevant to YOUR world!) What are some architectural contributions that the Romans made to the rest of the world? • After conducting your research, create a travel brochure, using Microsoft Publisher, showing at least three sites of ancient Rome that could still be visited today or at least three contributions to architecture that still appear today. You must also a 250 word essay highlighting why these three places are so important to Roman history. • Your brochure should include pictures and information about the sites or contributions. • You should also include a Works Cited page to record your documented information • See Architect Resources to view websites to research.

  10. The psychic • In Act I of Julius Caesar, a soothsayer plays a small but crucial part within the play by warning Julius Caesar to “Beware the Ides of March.” It is your job to research the history of fortune telling and extrasensory perception (ESP) and the role that they played in either the time of Julius Caesar or William Shakespeare. • After you conduct your research, write a 2 page persuasive paper that takes a stand on the whether or not psychics are phenomena that should be taken seriously or something that can be easily faked to part fools and their money. • Give at least 3 reasons to support your stance. Your paper should discuss opposing arguments, as well as information that refutes those arguments in order to make a stronger case. • You should have a minimum of 5 paragraphs, and each paragraph should have a minimum of 5-7 sentences!!! • Make sure to document and cite any and all outside information! • See Psychic Resources to view websites to research.

  12. The doctor • Within the play, Portia, Brutus’s wife, is concerned with her husband’s health, but she believes that his problem could be related to his mind and not a physical ailment. She says that if he were physically ill, he “would embrace the means to come by” good health. The fact is that Julius Caesar suffers from an ailment that appears to be the modern diagnosis of epilepsy. His enemies think that his makes him weak and undeserving of the prestige and power that he holds within the Roman government. • As the doctor, you will be researching what medicines or cures people of Ancient Rome might have used and what their beliefs were about illness. How did illness affect Caesar’s ability to lead? What were his major accomplishments as ruler of Rome? • Also choose one of the following former Presidents of the United States to research. What debilitating illnesses did they have? How did it affect their ability to lead? What did they accomplish as president? • John Kennedy • Franklin Delano Roosevelt • Woodrow Wilson • Make a poster comparing and contrasting the accomplishments of the two leaders. Make sure to include pictures and captions. Also, in a 250-500 word essay, include background on their health problems that better explains your poster. • Make sure to cite and document any and all outside information! • See Doctor Resources to view websites to research.

  22. Introduction • This lesson was originally designed as a web quest for the Tuscan Unified School District of Arizona. It has been adapted in order to fit the instructional goals and objectives of the Alabama Course of Study. • The purpose of this web quest is to provide the students with a way in which to relate the works of William Shakespeare, primarily Julius Caesar, to modern society. Because it is so crucial for students to be able to relate to the information that they learn, this web quest is ideal for both students and teachers. It allows students to see the relativity of what they learn, even if it happened 2,000 years ago.

  23. Learners • This web quest on William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar is designed for a sophomore English Language Arts class as a prerequisite to reading Julius Caesar. • In order to complete this web quest, students will need to have sufficient background knowledge in searching the Internet. • The goal of the web quest is for students to research and arrange material in an organized fashion. From that material, students will design both a group project to present in front of the class based on universal themes that establish relevance to the learning material and an individual project that provides students an opportunity to compile note taking skills with creativity skills to serve an overall role within the group.

  25. Process • The teacher will divide students into groups of four, and each student will have a specific job within the group. The manner in which students decide the roles is left up to the teacher’s discretion. Each person will have a specific job to complete. • Students need to read the specific expectations and responsibilities of the roles on the following pages in order to understand their duties for the project: • The Reporter • The Architect • The Psychic • The Doctor • As students work individually, they need to look for themes within the information that still resonate in today’s world. As they research, they will need to make a list of these themes, and complete a Venn Diagram that help them to organize the similarities and differences between Julius Caesar’s day and modern-day society. • The Venn Diagram will be used as the basis for their PowerPoint presentation for the town council meeting.

  26. Process (cont.) • This web quest is designed to take approximately three days for the students to research and organize information into a presentation. Students will present the information that they have found to the class on the fourth day. • Day one and two – research/individual project • Day three – group presentation • If students are not able to finish the work within this time frame, they will have to work on it outside of class. • In my classroom, the groups were divided randomly by the teacher, and students were assigned individual roles based on the drawing of straws. • In order for this web quest to be carried out smoothly, students should be given guidelines for group work and should constantly be monitored to ensure that they are on track and are on the assigned websites. There is no need for students to be on any other websites than the ones provided in this web quest. • Teachers should have ample knowledge in using Microsoft PowerPoint and the Internet.
