“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is different from anything else Shakespeare ever wrote.  He pulls from his education (Greek Mythology) and his wild imagination to create this one of a kind play.  He even pulls from old English lore, utilizing characters from all areas, even using characters from other plays being put on during the same time period.  This is a comedy of errors, a story of love, and a story of constant mishaps and misunderstandings, and the struggles of trying to “fix:” what you broke by mistake.  It was made into a movie in 1999, with a cast including Kevin Kline and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Throughout these lessons, students will learn the various lessons Shakespeare attempted to portray in his story of finding and keeping love.

Lesson Plan Format

Shakespeare as a man, poet, and writer is significant.  He was highly influenced by what was happening around him in Elizabethan England.  During each session, students will read portions of the play, look at historical context for what was written, delve into the various controversies that surround William Shakespeare, and how these relate to his writings and the world today.
