Introduction to Shakespeare gr 7+


This class is a study of the life of Shakespeare and four of his plays.
Students will learn the basics of Shakespeare’s life and times to better understand the works that they will be reading.  Four of the Bard’s plays will be read and studied during the year.  Together, the class will review and discuss the plays, complete in-class activities, analyze the work and take quizzes and tests.
The class will explore the importance of Shakespeare’s works, examining them and learning about his timeless characters, his riveting plots, his mastery of the English language, and how he influenced history and culture. Students will have a new appreciation for why studying Shakespeare is still as fun and important today as it was when the works were first written.
