"I maynotbe a lion,but I ama lion'scub,and I have a lion'sheart"
To fully appreciate Shakespeare’s works, it is important to learn about his life and the time period in which his works were written. This assignment requires students to investigate life during the Elizabethan England (16thCentury). The investigation will enable you understand the people, the places and the events during the Shakespearean era and, in effect, provide you with a deeper appreciation of the Shakespearean play, RomeoandJuliet. This assignment will also help you understand how society influences literature.
As you navigate through the websites provided below, the questions included under each heading will only serve as guides. You will need to determine other significant topics to share with your classmates. See the list below.
Each student has been already assigned to a group. Each group will investigate a specific topic and will do a presentation to teach the rest of the class about the topic researched (during the scheduled presentation time for their act). Be creative in your presentation format (handout, visual, multimedia, role play, etc)
