Activity Overview


In this activity, students will compare and contrast two characters in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar. Students will use the text to compile a list of motivations, traits, and beliefs for each character. With a T-Chart or Venn Diagram, students will describe and illustrate the similarities and differences between the two characters of their choice, focusing on beliefs, actions, motivations, and traits for each character. This activity can be done after completing a character map in order to provide a starting point for character research. It can also be a perfect way to gather evidence and examples for an essay or paper.

As an extended activity, have students research the historical counterparts of characters like Caesar or Marc Antony and have them compare and contrast how the character is portrayed in the play to how they actually were in real life.
