Reading as Boundless as the Sea With Shakespeare

Help me give my students the opportunity to experience a timeless Shakespearean play.

My Students

These students come to English Language Arts to partake in differentiated instruction and small group activities to help solidify knowledge and concepts in regards to fiction and non-fiction literature. Students in my classroom frequently fall under the categories of ESE (special education), ESOL (English as a second language and EBD (emotional behavior disorders).

While atypical, these students have large hearts and wide-open minds.

Delivering instruction is not always a simple task and usually requires extensive research and innovation. Despite hardships students face outside of class, like low-income households, homelessness, deceased or absent parents and other setbacks, they still manage to enter the classroom with positivity and light.

My Project

As the majority of my students come from low-income households, it is understandable that they have not been exposed to literature in the normal fashion in which most typical students might.

A love of reading is at the root of a passion for learning, and my students deserve the opportunity to fall in love with Shakespearean work the way any other individual does.

My students do not have the financial means, nor the resources to attain physical copies of novels and plays, as most of our local libraries are oftentimes outdated and underfunded.

Each and every year, I make it a point to heavily stress upon Shakespeare and his lasting imprint on our society today through the teaching of ROMEO AND JULIET. Help me to gift my students a tangible experience that is eye-opening and engaging through the use of physical novels. In making way for real-life print, my students will easily be able to grasp and retain pivotal content in the timeless tale.
