This Prezi is designed for students to just get their toes wet when diving in to the world of Shakespeare. It provides a few biological facts, as well as information about his acting career. The Prezi also reviews the three types of plays Shakespeare wrote, his sonnets, and the elements of a Shakespearean tragedy.
This Prezi is meant to be used as a teaser/brief introduction. I often have my students take one aspect of Shakespeare's life or Elizabethan England and conduct their own short research projects. Instead of listening to me drone on and on about Shakespeare, I give them a little taste and send them out to discover more for themselves.
