A Study Guide for A Midsummer Night's Dream

This is a great resource for teaching A Midsummer Night's Dream. It includes information on Shakespeare, introducing the play, activities, worksheets, and graphic organizers that the students can use. I would recommend creating your own activities and worksheets based on this PDF to ensure that you are focusing on your own teaching objectives.

Signet Classic Teaching Guide for A Midsummer Night's Dream

Signet Classic Teaching Guide for A Midsummer Night's Dream | Literature ideas for the classroom | Scoop.it

I feel that it's important to utilize resources that already exist on the web. While there are so many out there, it's also important to put use these resources as starting points and make them their own to fit your style of teaching and learning objectives. This teaching guide is published by the Penguin Group and includes beneficial components like themes, study questions, activities, and more references to look at. I would highly recommend looking at it and thinking about using it as part of A Midsummer Night's Dream unit.
