Today in class, students read an excerpt from a book about the world of Shakespeare: A Time Traveler’s Guide to Elizabethan England

You had two options for digesting this information.

The dull, boring option:

  • Read the excerpt from A Time Traveler’s Guide to Elizabethan England on literature and theatre.
  • Create a multi-level outline in Microsoft word that describes what literature and theatre were like.
  • I will grade you on how well you capture big ideas and significant details.

The fun, creative option(!):

  • Read the excerpt from A Time Traveler’s Guide to Elizabethan England on literature and theatre.
  • Create a full page comic strip that illustrates something about the theatre in Shakespeare’s time. Include lots of relevant details in the background.
  • I will grade you on how well you capture big ideas through the medium of visual art.

Whichever medium you choose, it’s due tomorrow at the start of class.
