PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you beginning a unit on Shakespeare and the Renaissance and reading one of his plays? How do you introduce the language of the time? Let’s face it: it’s the language that turns off students to reading Shakespeare. They think it’s too difficult to understand. However, if you make a game out of it, they will not only understand the language, but they will enjoy it and look forward to reading it.
This three-day lesson plan takes the students from analyzing the meaning of some Shakespeare quotes, through learning a few phrases in the language of the Renaissance, to creating their own Renaissance dialogues. In addition to the linguistics piece of the objectives, the lesson also includes a speech component as the students perform their dialogues using good presentation skills.
