We began today with a journal entry, in which we brainstormed all of the things that we knew or thought we knew about William Shakespeare and the Elizabethan era. If you have not yet brought your journal to class, it is late and you are setting off on the wrong foot! Please make sure to bring it next time.
Following this, we took notes on Shakespeare's life and times. We did this by filling in a note sheet, which you can access and download by clicking here.
The notes slideshow is available below (Intro to Shakespeare); you will be able to get most, but not all, of the answers from that presentation. You'll have to talk to a friend who was present to fill in the gaps.
Your completed note sheet was due at the end of class. It will be returned to you to be pasted into your notebook.
