Biographical movie on William Shakespeare

The project is the making of a biographical movie on William Shakespeare with 13/14 -year- old pupils of the Villard de Honnecourt Junior High School.

Before working on the writing of a biography, the students were introduced to the understanding of biographical narratives.

Then the aim was to make the comprehension of the biographical text understandable to all, working on reading aloud and on selecting pictures illustrating William Shakespeare’s life.

All of the students in groups of three created a film using the Movie Maker program.

Finally the pupils made a joint movie based on the strong points of all of their productions.
