An Introduction to Shakespeare
English as a Second Language
Nov 9, 2001
This unit has been developed for a sixth grade Language Arts class with integrated English Language Learners.
Students will read a biography of Shakespeare and complete a follow-up quiz. They can also take a virtual tour of the Globe Theater. It will introduce the students to two sonnets and two plays written by William Shakespeare. Each of the readings will have follow-up activities and foster an understanding of classical literature.
There will be two final projects: a class book of sonnets published and a video of the two plays produced.
