The Globe Shakespeare Context

£3.00
We explore Shakespeare’s The Globe Theatre and think about its layout, its structure, the different sections of the audience and the experience of visiting the theatre during the Elizabethan period. Students use their new knowledge and understanding to write their own diary entries from the viewpoint of a member of the Elizabethan audience. An excellent lesson for studying all Shakespeare texts and a great way of engaging students with historical and social context.
