Wednesdays With Will #11 - Shakespeare's Background
We've talked for weeks about elements of Shakespeare's plays, but who was this Shakespeare guy anyway? This week, we take a deep dive into William Shakespeare's life; who was he, what did he do and what else was going on for him at the time?
William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, though he spent a lot of time writing and performing plays in London, especially at the Globe Theatre. What else can you learn about Shakespeare from the video above?
After you're done learning about Shakespeare, it's time to keep the education going! Learn about someone else you admire - a friend, family member or historical figure - and write your own biography about them! You can also send your completed biography to firstname.lastname@example.org.
