We will explore the world of Shakespeare – the language, the history, the intrigue!  We will read the play, act out scenes and/or memorize soliloquies to bring the thespian out in all of us!  After all, “the play’s the thing!”  Come prepared to engage in lively discussions and conversations centered around the analysis of universal themes, thoughts, and truths found in the plays. 

 

As we study the writings of this mastermind, vivid imagery, intricate thought, word choice, and meaningful themes will serve as an inspiration to help us develop skills to unpack Shakespeare’s texts.


In addition to identifying literary elements that Shakespeare employees, we will write three to four in-depth analyses of his plays. We will learn college-level writing skills to begin developing scholarly arguments.


Average hours for homework: 3-5 hours
