    Julius Caesar BLog Assignment

     In order to encourage active reading and listening, you’ll be completing a reading blog. This blog is meant to deepen your understanding of, and connection to, the text. Your grade will depend on the thoroughness of your response and how well you attempt to engage with the text and others.

     For each entry (to be assigned at the end of each Act), choose two of the following options. Through the course of the play, you must use each option at least once. Please include each letter of the option you chose as a guide. Read and respond to at least two other posts. DO NOT FORGET TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME.

     

    a. Summarize the action of the scene and explain how it fits into the play as a whole.


    b.Ask five or more interesting,analytical questions about the scene. Answer three of them.


    c.“Talk” to one or more of the characters in the scene. Berate them, support them, challenge them, comfort them – whatever!


    d.Quote three (or more) lines from the text and discuss why the quote seems important, or why the quote stood out from the others.
    e.Comment on Shakespeare’s use of language.


    f.Discuss the relationship between two characters. The comments can be directed toward family relationships, romantic relationships, subject/sovereign relationships,political relationships, and friendships.


    g.Pretend you are an actor preparing to play the scene. What would your motivations be? What would you focus on? What would your delivery emphasize? Remember to tell me which character you are portraying.


    h.Discuss a reference to drama, acting,or the theatre.


    i.Discuss a reference to seeming versus being.


    j.Discuss a comparison one of the characters makes. Why is it significant?


    k.Comment on a character’s choices. Do they seem to be leading to an inevitable end?


    l.Rewrite(don’t just summarize!) a significant speech in your own words.


    m.Analyze a section of the text (or a speech). How does Shakespeare use form(literary devices) to convey meaning?
