    Rachael. Thanks for the lovely comments; I love giving my students interesting projects to work, hoping to instill in them the same passion I feel for a particular writer or work. I hope your students find the same.

    Fantastic. This is a fantastic project. I am just starting out on my teaching career and needed some background information on Elizabethan Life before tackling Shakespeare with my Year 10s. I feel like I have been on the journey of an Elizabethan teenager myself! I have learnt tons from the websites included. Thank you!
