Shakespeare Final Performances

(this may run over one class period depending on the number of Shakespeare performances there are in the class)



Students will demonstrate their ability to become a Shakespearean character by performing a monologue of scene from one of Shakespeare’s plays.



Shakespeare Performance Evaluations – USF Shakes Competition Ballots (found online at their website:



Have Renaissance music playing while the students come into the classroom and take their seats. 


Conduct a warm-up activity to clear the nerves of the students.  Give the students time to change into costume and run through their piece using costumes and props.


Have the students perform their Shakespearean scene or monologue for a final grade.  Fill out the USF competition evaluation sheet for each performance.



Students can be assessed on their performance.
