Entries in Story of the World (13)
A few weeks ago we had a gentle introduction to Shakespeare.
We continue now with a read aloud to learn more about Shakespeare and the Elizabethan England.
We are lingering in this era because there is so much to be learned, so much to be savored. I love homeschooling for this reason. We can PAUSE and soak in the beauty.
I've been anticipating studying Shakespeare for a few months now. I must admit it was initially intimidating. I do remember studying Shakespeare in college, but that was twenty years ago.
The chapter in The Story of the World, Volume 2 was a PERFECT, gentle introduction to Shakespeare. It gave a simple synopsis of Macbeth and explained tragedies, comedies and historical plays quite nicely. The whole thing peaked my children's curiosity about Shakespeare and they wanted to know MORE.
