On the 5th October, we presented exposés and sketches on the Elizabethan era.
The class was divided in small groups of three and each group had a specific subject (The Globe theater; the life in the 16th century; Shakespeare…).
I paired up with Paloma and Solène. We chose “The life in the 16th century”. While Solène looked up the web for information, Paloma and I wrote a sketch. It was an interview between a journalist and a peasant woman from the 16th century…Yes, she was raised from the dead! The woman talked about her daily life, her family and -of course- about the queen: Elizabeth 1st! Even thought we were a bit nervous in front of the class, it turned out well. : )
As for Solène’s exposé, you can read it here: Life in Elizabethan era
Several sketches (very original ones!) were played and a few exposés were presented to the class. You can take a look at them by clicking here: Francis Drake, SHAKESPEARE, The Globe Theatre, Women in the 16th century. A friend decided to make a short manga out of her group’s sketch, you can check it out here: The Globe Theater sketch (made by Youna)
Enjoy! ; )
