Description

Tudor Era British History in Context

The focus of this self-paced contextual British history class on the Tudor Era will be accomplished by studying the life & historical times of William Shakespeare.

Course Taster

This video will show you what students will do in the class and a sample of a previous student’s final semester project.  The course content for the self-paced class is similar to that of a live class. However, class session group activities are handled differently to provide a rich learning experience in a self-paced environment.  This 1/2 credit self-paced course is equal to the first semester  (Tudor Era) of the live classes mentioned in the video.

Course Creator: Shannan Swindler

Required Materials: None! Everything is included in the self-paced course.

In this contextual history class, we do not read plays, novels, or discuss iambic pentameter (well, not too much at least).  Those aspects are covered in depth in the British Literature Year 1 Literature & Composition course.

Explore Tudor England through the life of William Shakespeare

In this self-paced class, students will explore Tudor England through the life of William Shakespeare.  We will bring each of their life into historical context by learning about 30+ other famous people who were alive (or had dramatic influence) in the Tudor era.  By creating a dinner party where the guests are famous people of the era, students will learn about historical events, society, culture, and current events as well as the science and philosophy of the day.

In this 12-15 week self-paced course, students will research a variety of  famous people including:

  • Authors/Philosophers
  • World Leaders
  • Artists
  • Musicians/Composers
  • Christian Evangelists/Theologians/Missionaries/Humanitarians
  • Social Activists
  • Scientists
  • Explorers
  • and more

Through hands-on activities, students will create a dinner party including a guest list, menu, activities, music, and more.  Each student will present their culminating project in a presentation. And, if you choose, you can organize your own event where people attend your dinner party in person and take on the role of a famous figure from the guest list.  This extra effort is perfect for students needing a senior thesis/culminating studies project if they are keen on further study in history or literature.

The dinner party concept allows for much creativity within the scope of the final project.

Some students have enjoyed organizing military greats to meet and share war stories over pub food.  Others have organized multi-course meals with music and jesters to entertain high-society aristocrats from all over the world.  The options are limited only by the student’s creativity.

This course is a required companion to our British Literature & Composition Year 1 – Shakespeare course for those studying for the iGCSE Literature exam.  Students following the USA High School Diploma & Transcript model will receive 1/2 Social Studies credit for the successful completion of this semester-long self-paced class.
