Shakespearean Pickup Lines (Ted-Ed)

Posted Eureka Lessons English, Grade 9-10, Lessons, Literature

Warm Up: Ask students about some of the best (and appropriate) pickup lines they've ever used.

Transition: Did you know that some of the best pickup lines in history were written by Shakespeare?  How does "Hey sweetheart, you're the prettiest girl in the room" compare to "So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows"?  A dove among crows?  What a compliment!

Go over the follow up questions and check out the resources attached to this video.
