Titus Andronicus: Historical Context

As part of our exploration of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus the class is engaging in some research about the Elizabethan times and the context from which the play arose. Included here is a short video where I try to give the students some cues to the lines of inquiry they might wish to pursue and also, attached below, is the research questions with the students committing to following these attached.

Ultimately the outcomes of this research will lead to a resource book that everyone who makes a contribution will have access to.
