This Prezi provides students with a fun introduction to William Shakespeare. In creating this, I've attempted to give students a few reasons why they should even care about some guy who wrote a ton of stuff in a strange sounding language hundreds of years ago!
In this presentation, you'll find several videos:
Video #1: describes how Shakespeare has influenced literature/language (see Shakespeare Prezi Intro Worksheet)
Video #2: describes funny Elizabethan insults and their meanings (see Shakespeare Prezi Intro Worksheet)
Video #3: quick Shakespeare bio
Video #4: describes the history of the Globe Theatre (see Shakespeare's Globe Worksheet)
You can use this intro to Shakespeare in almost any grade level, no matter what play or sonnet you may be preparing to teach. This Prezi also has two worksheets that accompany it entitled Shakespeare's Globe Worksheet and Shakespeare Prezi Intro Worksheet, which you can find in my TPT store for $0.99 each!
