U3L1A2 Renaissance Speeches
Today, you will analyze two speeches given by Queen Elizabeth I, one when she was a young woman and one at the end of her reign. All files are in the 3 Renaissance folder in the Google drive.
First, watch the two film versions of the speech that Elizabeth made to her troops while awaiting an attack from the Spanish Armada (Queen Elizabeth I - Speech to the Troops at Tilbury.mp4; Queen Elizabeth I (Cate Blanchett), Tilbury Speech.mp4). Then, read the speech and answer the associated questions (Queen Elizabeth I Speech - Against the Spanish Armada.pdf; Queen Elizabeth I Speech Before Her Troops MC Qs.docx).
Next, read and answer the questions about Elizabeth I’s Golden speech (Queen Elizabeth I Golden Speech with MC Qs.docx).
Fill in the first two columns of the SOAPSTone analysis about these speeches (Speech SOAPSTone.doc). You will not hand this in, yet. We will be completing it and handing it in later.

U6L2A3 Conjunctions and Their Meanings
Conjunction Sort by Meaning.docx; Conjunctions exercise choosing the correct one.docx
You will need your SpringBoard text to complete these activities:
- Review/discuss Cultural criticism (p. 258) and discuss application in Beowulf and Grendel. Discuss in relation to Othello.
- Complete and discuss Marxist Anticipation Guide.pdf.
- Think/Pair/Share Essential Question #3, p. 146.
- Introduce Marxist lens (p. 190)
- Discuss Marxist hierarchy (p. 269).
- Complete text pp. 270-271. Discuss.
- As we read Othello, students will trace themes, motifs, and details relevant to the Cultural, Feminist, and Marxist lens on these charts: Othello Evidence Log New Rev.docx; Perspectives in Othello_Lenses.docx. These charts make up your legal “cheat sheet” for the written portion of the Othello test. The more thorough your charts are, the higher your grade is likely to be on the test. You will be required to quote and cite evidence from Othello, but you will not be allowed to use the actual text. You will have access only to the information you have recorded on your charts. You will be allowed to use only HAND-WRITTEN charts on the test.
