Flipped Lesson – Julius Caesar

I’ve taught Julius Caesar before but this time I’m so excited because I found that the creator of the blog, iTeach. iCoach. iBlog., created a lesson plan for the play that focuses on the arguments made in the speeches. And it ends in a Socratic Seminar. I think I’m in love with his lesson plan so that’s basically what we are doing in class for a closer read and understanding of the text.
