Instructions: You will explore information and complete assignments based on Shakespeare’s life and work. You have six activities to complete. To begin, open a new Word Document and ‘Save As’ the filename: Your Name. Shakespeare (for example: Bruno Mars. Shakespeare, or Nicky Minaj. Shakespeare). Complete your MLA headings (Your Name, Teacher’s Name, English 9N/S/M, Date) and don’t forget to add the header with your last name and the page number. Your Title will be “William Shakespeare”.

You must complete each activity in complete sentences and your own words!
