Shakespeare 1 Honors encourages and fosters an appreciation for Shakespeare's work through close-reading, critical analysis, and creative projects. Students will learn to analyze form as well as content. The course introduces Elizabethan England and begins with analysis of Shakespearean non-dramatic poetry, moves through class performance and analysis of two comedies, and finishes with an adaptation study. Each unit culminates in a project modeled after the genre studied and celebrated with a student presentation.
Honors level classes can expect more rigorous requirements for assignments and assessments.
