Brave Writer Shakespeare Resources

This month our Brave Writer Lifestyle focus is Shakespeare! Check out our website page for ways to include the Bard in your homeschool.

And guess what? Registration for our Shakespeare Family Workshop class opens soon on December 3, so break out your fancy quills and mark your calendars.

The Shakespeare Family Workshop is aimed at a younger audience. This hands-on five-week workshop is great for all kinds of learners.

The class will include:

  • craft projects,
  • group learning/research,
  • online resources, discussion,
  • creative writing
  • video recommendations

The family workshop provides a multi-sensory approach to the study of Shakespeare and his works. A few informal writing assignments will be provided for families to do together or separately.

In this course, we’ll learn about:

  • The Elizabethan Theatre scene
  • Shakespeare’s life and times
  • The Bard’s poems and plays
  • Will’s unique writing style and place in English literature

In addition, we’ll also explore one of Shakespeare’s famed sonnets and a few of Shakespeare’s more well-known soliloquies and scenes from several plays.

While you wait for registration to open, here are some Shakespeare resources you can use with your family right now:
