In love with Shakespeare


In Love with Shakespeare is a didactic unit for Batxillerat designed by Anna Aznar and Jordi Jordan. It can be done as a whole or selecting some of the units.  The main objectives here are to develop communicative strategies, both spoken and written, and to get to know some aspects of English culture (basically history and literature), with the aid of ITC.

😎 Try it! Click on the link and pass your mouse over the picture, the different units will appear. Click on the first one, Tudor England and start by learning about the context in which Shakespeare lived: the monarchy, the city of London and the way they dressed. Again, pass the mouse over the screen and click on the different pictures. By searching the web sites provided, you must find out about Henry VIII, his wives and how Elizabeth I accessed the throne. You must also identify the main characters in Tudor history in a number of portraits. Then, you can click on Tudor London and complete a description of the city at that time after reading a website, learn about London monuments and place them in a map.
