Welcome Audience

A bit of fun to get started

Title and Objectives

SLIDE 2 - TITLE AND OBJECTIVES

Why is this topic important to me?

- How is this reflected in the title and objectives

Fact:- 

Including the plays set in Italy and those featuring characters with Italian names/other connections nearly half of all the plays Shakespeare wrote featured Italy, more than any other country he wrote about

Plan

SLIDE 3 - PLAN, GO THROUGH THE ENTIRE TRANSITION

CALENDAR SYSTEM

(SHOW PLAN AROUND THE CLASS)

Why did I choose this system?

Advantages - easy to monitor/follow - easy to see errors - clear structure

Disadvantages - can be difficult to include other things that may affect your EPQ after the time

Go through the calendar with what I did when

Evaluate - what went wrong?  Make enough room for risks?

Was my plan perfect? Make enough room for secondary research?

Justification of Plan

- Did I think it would work at the time, did I think I could evaluate credibility of sources before I read them?

- Calendar system over other systems - e.g. over post-it notes

- Why did I think things through this way?

- What did I not account time for?

- What would I do differently?

Research methodology

Research Methodology

- Wide Range of Resources

- Credibility check using the CRAVEN Criteria and assesing the strength of the agruement through the structure of their arguement

- Plausibility checking

- Triangulation

- As associated lines of arguement emerged, I would investigate these. Examples of this are the Etymology (fancy word for the origin of a word) of some of Shakespeare's words and Shakespeare's Apocrypha (works associated with Shakespeare, although a lack of evidence mean's they haven't been attributed to him)

Edward De Vere

 - 17th Earl of Oxford

- Key Contender for the Authorship debate

- Backing:

Culture, travel, wealth and means to focus on writing and pull off the forgery

- Criticisms:

Marxists: A proletarian emerging with such eloquent work's must be a forgery in order to keep the people in their subordinate position

 Death prior to the date Shakespeare stopped writing
