Lesson Idea:

Working in pairs as the designers and producers of a Shakespeare play, students are asked to consult various sources both written and visual to help with developing a concept for the design of the set for their play. Each pair must create a model for the set based on the information they have researched and learned which clearly communicates their design concept. The pairs will present their models to the class to gain feedback on their design concept.
