Lesson Plan

Merely Players

This Merely Players lesson plan also includes:

“. . . one man in his time plays many parts,/His acts being seven ages.” Jaques famous speech from Act II, scene vii of As you Like It sets the stage for an examination of the roles people play. Class members not only consider the roles played and masks worn by various characters in Shakespeare’s plays, but are also encouraged to examine their own. A variety of activities are included to enable learners to make text-to-self and text-to-world connections. “And so (we) play (our) part.”
