Introduction to Much Ado About Nothing


The introduction to “Much Ado About Nothing” Breakout Room is the perfect way to introduce the play.

According to research, using games when teaching increases student participation, comprehension, as well as fostering emotional and social learning.

Today’s 21st- century student needs to be fully engaged in learning to gain knowledge and then apply it in meaningful ways. Many teachers find that traditional comprehension questions are not engaging and often do not reinforce understanding. Both teacher and student often find answering the traditional chapter questions tedious and uninteresting.

  1. An introduction to Shakespeare’s life and times
  2. Information about the Globe Theatre
  3. Information about Shakespeare’s use of language
