Cheerio! Off To Shakespeare’s London We Go!

PIC1073480136Students,  no need to pack any bags or get your passport! You are taking a virtual journey to Shakespeare’s London via Project Explorer. This is a great website chock full of fun things to see and do and learn about on your trip to London.

Using the left hand side menu bar, please choose one area to visit under the first three headings:

Looking For Shakespeare

Time Traveling

Tour Guide

Under the last heading, The Play’s The Thing, please visit “The Dream.”

Each page has content, images, and video for you to explore.

Please answer the following:

What did you find interesting and what did you learn on your journey?

What did you like best about your trip?

What are you looking forward to as we study Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream?

You are certainly welcome to stay and tour in London as long as you like!

I have added the Animated Tales from the BBC of A Midsummer Night’s Dream to a new page at the top. It will give you somewhat of an introduction as to what this play is all about. Enjoy!

Traveling To Shakespeare’s London From Home!

You are about to embark on a virtual journey: Shakespeare’s London. Please visit the link below to begin your trip; you don’t even need a passport! The itinerary is listed on the left menu bar. You may select any fifteen days to visit. After reading the text and checking out any links, you should scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the video, photo, and scrapbook options.

When you have returned from your trip to London, I would like for you to answer the following prompt:

Please tell me the most interesting thing you have learned from each day’s activities and why; you should have at least fifteen facts or reflections gathered from your travels.

I suggest you jot down each day’s thoughts as you read; it’s far easier than having to go back and retrace your steps. For those of you who look for shortcuts, and I know you’re out there, don’t just write down the first thing you see on a page and then go on to another day, you’ll be missing out on everything this site has to offer; besides, I’ll be able to tell. Remember, your responses are all about the details and the effort you put into them.

Due to the amount of interactives and reading, you will have an extra day, Thursday, by which to get your response in.

Die dulci fruere! And pack lightly!
