This assignment can be used before starting any Shakespearean play. I divide the class into five groups and either take them to the library or use the computer lab. Each group has a different topic to research and present to the class. The topics are:

King James I
Queen Elizabeth I
Shakespeare's Life
Shakespeare's Time-period
The Globe Theatre

There is also a peer evaluation sheet and a rubric for the presentations.

Both an editable MS Word copy of this project and a PDF version are included here for your convenience.

Please download the demo and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

*This product is included in all of my Shakespeare units.
