The Real World: Elizabethan Era
Shakespeare for 21st Century Learners
38 page + Elizabethan Era and Shakespeare Resource Bundle for 9th-12th Grades
The Common Core Learning Standards mandate certain critical types of content for all students, including classic myths and stories from around the world, foundational U.S. documents, seminal works of American literature, and the writings of Shakespeare.
Just as media and technology are integrated in school and life in the twenty-first century, skills related to media use (both critical analysis and production of media) are integrated throughout the standards.
Integrating technology into the teaching of Shakespeare makes the content more modern, appealing, and relevant to the 21st Century student. This resource bundle focuses on the historical context of William Shakespeare’s world, the Elizabethan Era, and William Shakespeare’s life and works.
The materials in Real World: Elizabethan Era include a plethora of multimedia and digital resources in order to present Shakespeare and his world in an appealing, exciting way to 21st Century students.
