Prior to reading Romeo and Juliet, I introduce my students to the Renaissance, theater and Shakespeare using this power point and notes. The power point provides pictures and facts regarding the Renaissance, Globe theater, theater during the Renaissance and a biography and the significance of William Shakespeare. I have the students complete the notes worksheet while I lecture. Upon completion, the student take a mini-quiz on the information, which is also attached with the answer key.
22 slides, one notes sheet, one quiz and answer key
