SHAKESPEARE CONQUEST is a 2-semester fun, interactive, immersion approach to studying the heightened language of one of the greatest bards who ever lived. During the first semester students study one play in depth, discussing a few scenes at a time. They are challenged through the “Royal Challenge” to watch, listen to, or read 17 plays during the same semester. When they do, they are crowned a king or queen! Over the course of the semester there are lectures on interesting poetic nuances, they learn to create a vocabulary list, write papers and give presentations on Elizabethan times. During the second semester students have actors’ training and put on a real Shakespeare play for the community in the spring!
