The documentary "Last Will. and Testament" 2013 (originally aired on PBS) is a thorough look into the reason some scholars and thespians continue to pursue the authorship question. With big names, scenes from big budget movies, and high quality production students remain the entire time, despite the incredible depth of the argument.

Use this tool to help students organize their thoughts and start a great whole class discussion. I also use the back to assess their ability to write an argument and support it with evidence.

Evaluate a speaker's point of view, reasoning, and use of evidence and rhetoric, assessing the stance, premises, links among ideas, word choice, points of emphasis, and tone used.
