Happy Birthday Shakespeare

In honor of Shakespeare's upcoming birthday here's a glimpse at a post I wrote last year for a collaborative blog I work on.

April 23rd is the generally accepted date of birth (and coincidentally, death) of Shakespeare!  This is based off of his baptism date.
Whenever I have taught Shakespeare my students have been intimidated, so why not make it fun and throw a party in his honor?
There ain’t no party like a Shakespeare party ‘cause a Shakespeare party don’t stop.shakesbday
Here are some ideas:
Decorations:Hang posters of Shakespeare’s plays.  Print up famous quotes and hang them as well!  Make the front of the classroom look like a stage with fancy curtains!  The ideas are endless!
Music:Check out this list of 11 Songs inspired by or referencing Shakespeare on Mental Floss!
Here’s another list with even more from SongFact!
