Another term done, and another terrible version of one of Shakespeare's plays. My kids picked Julius Caesar this term. Honestly, I am not 100% sure why studying Shakespeare is so amazing for your education; most of them are filled with murder and sleeping around. Surprisingly, those are two subjects that I don't usually teach about, but for some reason if it's Shakespeare it makes it ok?
After Googling around for all of 30 seconds it seems that the reason we teach Shakespeare is because it is popular culture and has withstood the test of time. So, basically I teach it because everybody else is doing it and honestly my monkeys really like making their weird movies.
If you want to read how I really teach it, you can read about it HERE.
My favorite line from this play was when Caesar is dying that he requests that a salad be named after him. I will be shocked if one of my children don't end up becoming an amazing writer. :)
