This is a powerpoint presentation that has corresponding notes. Students use the close notes to fill in key words by viewing the presentation and learn about Shakespeare's life. Topics include childhood, marriage to Anne Hathaway, acting career, plays, death and legacy. Interesting facts, such as the size of his vocabulary, and details about the Globe theater are included. The text level would suit Grades 6-10. I would use this to help establish historical context before reading a play by the Bard.
