Set up as a true/false “quiz,” students will be asked a series of questions about Shakespeare’s life and times such as “True or False: Shakespeare wrote in Old English,” and “True or False: A typical Elizabethan took a bath once a month.” Along the way, they will encounter multiple video clips, pictures, websites, and interactive elements to get them engaged in a subject they may have some apprehensions about.
Additionally, in this presentation, there is a short history of the English language geared towards easing the tensions students might have over Shakespeare’s language as well as covering why students today struggle with the language.
