Home Learning Project –Shakespeare Research Project

What is this home learning project about? Over the next few weeks you’ll be preparing for your next unit, which will be on William Shakespeare and his play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

How long will I have to do it? After this week, you will have 3 additional weeks to complete the project. A suggested outline can be seen below. You will be handing in your pre-teaching activities to your teacher the week beginning 20th April. This will be when your next unit starts.

What is expected of me? It’s expected that you will work hard on this project. It’s a chance for you to demonstrate to your teacher your research skills and what you can find out about William Shakespeare.

What will I learn from this and what skills will I develop? You will develop your Independent TRIC skill through the research that you do.

How will it be marked? Your ability to research will be marked for this. Note: research is not the same as copying! We do not expect you to copy information from a book or from the Internet; this is called plagiarism and is not acceptable. Instead you must use sources of information to write up your findings in your own words.

How should I approach the project? This is a suggestion of how you could do the project. You will also need the Shakespeare Research. Tick off each section when you’ve done it.

Where can I find resources? There are plenty of brilliant books about Shakespeare in the library. You can also use the internet, but make sure that what you are reading is reliable.

Your task: Create a one page factsheet suitable for people of your age about William Shakespeare. Include details about his life, life in the theatre when he was living, his plays and modern Shakespeare.
