Spring Break is here! What this means is that I have a little bit more time to myself, and much more time to finalize lesson plans, create resources, etc.
Today’s primary achievement was creating a Viewing Guide for William Shakespeare: A Life of Drama, the A&E Biography that I plan on showing my students at the beginning of our project. I wonder if my students ever realize just how much work (the watching, the re-watching, creating a viewing guide, etc.) goes into showing them a film?
My second achievement was creating a rough draft of a PowerPoint on Theater during Shakespeare’s time.
My plan is to use both to help kids visualize the historical, social, and professional contexts in which Shakespeare wrote.
