This secondary resource takes inspiration from Mark Antony's speech at the funeral of Caesar.

It's a great opportunity to mix politics and English language/literature.

It allows pupils to explore the rhetorical devices used by Shakespeare and: 

  • compare modern political speeches (e.g. Barack Obama's 'Yes We Can' speech) with Mark Antony's speech
  • consider the political relevance of Julius Caesar to every new generation 
  • create their own political speeches using rhetorical devices 

Fully resourced over several lessons, with a scheme PowerPoint and several interactive video resources, this provides a stimulating half-term's focus.
