World War I Literature

This week, the grade 10 English class covered Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. Students were tasked with choosing a scene from the play and manipulating the text to tell a more effective story. Performances of the new scripts, with rewritten and condensed plots, begin next Tuesday.
