dc.description.abstract After teaching literature for the past five years, I have found that many of the traditional teaching methods concerning classical literature are ineffective for the average and academically at-risk student. The students are often bored and feel that there is no reason why they are being exposed to this material. I have spent many hours attempting to find a solution for this problem, because most of my students are in this category in the sophomore year. For purposes of this study, I have decided to concentrate on one of the most difficult units on the sophomore level, Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. This thesis will help teachers have a successful Julius Caesar unit. It is a coherent rationale and detailed teaching unit for the instructor of Julius Caesar. It includes the rationale for teaching the play, a step-by-step teaching unit, many interesting and fun activities along with vocabulary, handouts, transparencies, a test, and a paraphrased version of the play. Not only does this unit provide an opportunity for teachers to get average and at-risk students interested in Julius Caesar, but it is also flexible enough to work into an honors level curriculum and just about any other level for high school sophomores. en
