Students write a friendly letter to Shakespeare to describe an invention or innovation that has happened since his lifetime. This is the perfect way to incorporate some descriptive, STEM writing into your Shakespeare unit. This editable resource includes a project description, choice of two rubrics, and a brainstorming sheet.
Students enjoy this opportunity to describe inventions in words and terms that Shakespeare would understand. For example, one of my students wrote that a text message is “like a letter written in invisible ink, on invisible paper, delivered instantly by an invisible horse and rider.” I also give students extra credit for illustrations.
