This thesis is a report on an experimental method of teaching Julius Caesar. / Chapter I contains a discussion of methods used in presenting dramatic literature. Also, the results of a survey conducted among leading textbook publishers asking why the play Julius Caesar was included in their anthology, and if they, as textbook publishers, would recommend student productions. / Chapter II contains a record of a production of Julius Caesar as it was presented in the Dodge City Senior High School. Pictures of the production and explanatory materials are included in the Appendix. / Chapter III presents conclusions which show that production offers the student many new opportunities; script reading for interpretation of character, practical experience in set design, lighting, costuming and make-up, along with a broader understanding of history.
