This paper produces a lesson plan for work in the introduction of Shakespeare and his works to 11th grade students at a public high school. It further discusses which of three learning theories would best be applied to this type of lesson. The learning theories considered include constructivism, cognitivism, and behaviorism.

From the Paper:

"In preparing a learning design for teaching Shakespeare it is evident that many students enter beginning lessons with apprehensions regarding the language, understanding, and situations of the major works. Furthermore, it is also clear that determining one theory which best applies to the learning objective is dependent upon the approach taken to the learning event, and the students that are involved in the educational process. Learning Environment The learning will take place in an 11th grade classroom at a public high school. There are 15 students in the class, all of which have had little to no exposure to the works of William Shakespeare. These students have, however, had experience with performance, reading plays, and various elements of theatre. The objective of the lesson is to provide an introduction to Shakespeare that modernizes the author's work, and provides a better understanding of Shakespeare's intentions."
