Today, we will examine the assignment for this unit, a historical dialogue. Over the next 8-10 days, we will focus on one of the topics listed in the document; whenever possible, the remaining time will be dedicated to writing the dialogue itself.
For students who are away for the next few days, please do the following (remember that the items below can also be used in your dialogue):
- watch this video about the gunpowder plot, and list off the key events in the plot
- the second half of this podcast focuses on Elizabeth I. Listen to it, and write a paragraph outlining some of the techniques Elizabeth used to maintain control over her court
- watch this video about the Spanish Armada, and briefly explain the sequence of events that took place.
