This is a fun and interactive presentation on the History of the English Language. Starting with Latin and progressing through Old English, Middle English, and Early Modern English. It uses videos and timelines to help students comprehend what they are learning.
Students work through the presentation with a handout for guided note taking as well as translating texts from popular sources.
Includes Examples from Horace, Beowulf, The Canterbury Tales, and Romeo and Juliet.
Student activity on slang is at the end of the presentations. Great to use as an introduction to Shakespeare's language.
