    Shakespeare is a curious character as he has a variety of conspiracies surrounding his authorship, he has the government believing one thing and the rest of the world believing another, he is still a topic of debate after 400 years while others do not make it 100 years, and his conspiracy theory started in a very undramatic way. If the facts are examined surrounding Shakespeare’s authorship, there is only one clear answer. There is no need to consider this a conspiracy theory. The only reason it…

    To Be or Not to Be: Is Shakespeare the True Author? Before this project, I had always thought that Shakespeare was a real person, and the true author of all the works under the name. I only learned for the first time this year that there is even speculation that Shakespeare is not the true author. I was honestly really surprised because Shakespeare is such a well - known author. Going into this project, I had no idea which side I was on, mostly because I knew nothing about the Anti-…

    A Statue of Shakespeare Johnson is known for his obsession with biography. In his Rambler No. 60, Johnson even claims “[he] often thought that there has rarely passed a life of which a judicious and faithful narrative would not be useful” (182). Curiously, Shakespeare seems to be one of the few exceptions. In his “Preface to The Plays of William Shakespeare” (referred to as “Preface to Shakespeare" below), Johnson does not show any interest in Shakespeare’s life. Nor did Johnson write a…

    expectation that students’ work should be ready for assessment during first minutes of class. Still others mill about the room or the hallway casually, their assignments ranging from crumpled and forgotten to half completed to impeccably filled out in flowing ballpoint pen, seemingly unaware of the humming energy surrounding them. A cursory glance at students’ work for completion during silent reading, the opening daily routine for the sophomore literature class, reveals even more variety…

    Stories have a weird way of changing how people think. Several stories have influenced my life. For example Shakespeare 's “Merchant of Venice” is a story that showed me that there isn’t always a bad guy and a good guy. This story taught me that the lines between right and wrong may at times be blurred. Shirley Climo’s Cobweb Christmas, which tells the story of how tinsel came about, taught me that all creatures are important no matter how small, even spiders. But some stories taught bigger,…

    being asked. The reason I believe things work this way and that the idea of helping others actually works was because of what happened to me a while back. One day in the winter time as I was making my way back home from school, after soccer practice when I saw a little child that looked around the age of 7, short with long hair all on his face. He was alone crying and he seemed very terrified. I asked him if he was ok and his response was 'no I’m lost and I don’t know how to get home '. When…

    would highlight information I thought was important. The third time I read I would look specifically for where in the article the answers to the required reading questions could be found. This helped me because the articles were very dense and long and it was too difficult to understand them in a single reading. For exams, the thing that helped me the most in my preparation was attending the review sessions that were held by the class preceptor. As a student who had already taken the course, he…
