Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding The Impact of Symbols in the Setting in Act II of MidSummer Night’s Dream - Section 4: Independent Practice: Stations


What makes station activities effective for this type of lesson? Shakespeare puts so much confusion in one act that students need help organizing major aspects of the play. In the Color Me Bad handout, students are being asked to create a visual image of something that isn't described in much detail in the play. From the reading of the act, students gain information about the potion that the flower contains to make individuals fall in and out of love. However, students aren't told what this flower looks like. Check out my Color Me Bad reflection video to see how I reflected on students' reaction to the assignment.
