This is used for my intro to Shakespeare's world...asking them to rewind over 450 years ago!
***This handout goes along with the Powerpoint in my shop, but can also be used as a mini research project too.
It doesn't involve a lot of note-taking (rather, it uses fill-in-the-blank style) so students can focus on the information (and it takes less time to teach)
It helps students focus on the social world in which Shakespeare lived..and then they use this knowledge to make connections when reading the various plays.
Also has a mini Globe Theatre diagram to help students visualize this
