Description

Help your students learn who William Shakespeare was and how he became the world's most famous playwright. This lesson includes a brief history of Shakespeare's life from his birth to his death. If you would like your students to learn more about Shakespeare's early life, Shakespeare's love life (!), and his rise to fame. Then this engaging lesson resource is for you!

Contents:

  • 9 pages covering Shakespeare’s biography (this are provided in both color for projecting on your whiteboard or b/w to use as part of a centers, stations, or group work activity)
  • A one page worksheet (un-worksheet!) for your students to make notes on

How I use this resource:

  1. Print the worksheet on for each student, increase to A3 for ease.
  2. Then depending on the age and ability of my class, I do one of the following:
  3. Project the slides with the color background on my whiteboard and the whole can discuss and work together to create a summary of the information onto their sheets, OR
  4. Print the black and white information slides and pin these up around the classroom (I sometimes print two versions for ease). Students then go to each slide in pairs and summarize the information onto their worksheet, OR
  5. I give each black and white information sheet to a pair or three. They summarize and then dictate the summary to the rest of the class.
  6. I then let students color the worksheet boxes to color-code Shakespeare’s life.
