These materials were first shared with a receptive audience at a national ELA conference in Boston. Your students will love exploring the nature of the relationship of one of Shakespeare's most famous couples. They will learn about marriage laws and customs including spousals and clandestine marriages. There is a particular emphasis on the role that love letters and gifts played in creating a marriage contract. There are quotations from multiple scholarly sources as well as links to articles. I have included seminar questions and an easy-to-use seminar scoring form.
