Master Class: Teaching Julius Caesar
What does it mean to teach Julius Caesar the Folger way? What insights from performance, scholarship, and expert classroom practice can grow your knowledge and your students’ understanding?
Shakespeare may have written Julius Caesar as the first of his plays to be performed at the Globe, in 1599. For it, he turned to a key event in Roman history: Caesar’s death at the hands of friends and fellow politicians. Renaissance writers disagreed over the assassination, seeing Brutus, a leading conspirator, as either hero or villain. Shakespeare’s play keeps this debate alive.
