Students then engage in projects, products, and activities in all learning styles. Use the problem-based learning activity to celebrate his birthday, have a Shakespeare Festival as a culminating activity, participate in the Historic Whodunit, recreate and Elizabethan market, and visit web sites. Includes Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Much Ado About Nothing, The Taming of the Shrew, and Julius Caesar.
