Shakespeare?

I think that we shouldn’t keep teaching Shakespeare. It’s old and outdated, and it doesn’t relate to today’s society. Some people find it a waste of time to learn about something that was written so long ago. Some people also may have reading disabilities or may just not be the best reader in the world. If these people try to read Shakespeare they could become discouraged and then just want to give up reading all together because Shakespeare is so difficult. Also some people think that learning stuff from a dead guy who was white isn’t exactly the best idea.

Everything I Know or Think I Know About Shakespeare

I know that Shakespeare uses really old fashion weird words. He wrote a lot of famous plays like Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Macbeth, The tempest, A Midsummer Night’s dream, Much Ado about nothing, and As you like it. I also know that when his plays were going on only men were allowed to perform so all Men and Women parts in the play were guys. I’ve read Much Ado About Nothing, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, The tempest, and Hamlet. I think that studying Shakespeare will be fun and boring at the same time. I know that some of his plays are amazing and that others, in my opinion, could use some work, but overall i’m excited to learn more about him.

Self-assessment

I think that being able to asses your own work is very important. We need to be able to understand by ourselves what is good and what is bad in out writing. When you are able to asses your own work you will be able to see what is wrong and what can go better. This can lead to better grades and more teachers will appreciate how hard you have been trying. If we want a good paying job in the future we need to understand what skills it will take to get the job. Sometimes we will need to be able to fix what we’ve done. Someone may become an architect and will need to look at their past work and understand what they can improve on in the future.
