At last... the popular Caught'ya technique of teaching English is adapted especially for the needs of high school teachers. Turn drudge into delight. Three Shakespeare comedies help high school English teachers teach grammar, mechanics, usage, vocabulary, and literary devices. Jane Bell Kiester transforms Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Much Ado About Nothing into adaptable Caught'ya sentences that appeal to high school students at any level -- from basic skills and dropout prevention through high honors and advanced placement.
The resource includes literacy devices., a funny mix-and-match menu of Elizabethan swear words; teaching suggestions and lessons plans; end-of-the-year tests and keys; corrected Caught'ya sentences; and a grammar and usage quick- reference section.
The Bard comes alive with sparkling dialogue and direct Shakespearean quotes sprinkled throughout. Each story includes all the grammar, mechanics, usage and vocabulary that a high school English teacher needs to teach for the entire school year. It takes only minutes a day.
