Reflection: Lesson Planning Introducing Shakespeare and the Elizabethan Age - Section 1: Teacher-led Intro of Elizabethan England


Putting together a great lesson takes a ton of time.  I have taught Romeo and Juliet at least ten times, and each time I teach it, I start from the beginning.  In Resources, I made quick screencast  that sort of shows how I begin each unit.  Though I know what I need to teach, and I have a lot of resources on my computer that I can use, I find it most helpful to start putting it all together by doing research online and in books and working with a notebook and a pen.
