Shakespeare's Education By Varun Liam Yu Sean
Transcript of Shakespeare's Education By Varun Liam Yu Sean
Girls did not get an education unless they were from the upper class.
Boys were first sent to ‘petty schools’ at the age of 5 and left at the age of 7
These schools were usually run by a housewife and they taught the boys basic skills as well as how they should behave
The early education of William Shakespeare would include respecting his mother and father, asking his parents blessing, rising early in the morning and saying his prayers
After attending petty school, the boys would, if their families could afford it, go to a grammar school.
Grammar school started at 6 in the morning and finished at 5 in the evening A girl’s education would be different to a boy’s.They would be taught proper manners, how to do house duties obedience to men and music and dance if they were lucky.
A boy’s education would start at 5am at a petty school.
There, boys would learn how to read and write basic English for a small fee.
Then they would go to grammar school if they could afford it.
Shakespeare's teachers were Catholic, so his teachings were influenced by their beleifs Shakespeare's Education Who got education??? Quality of Education Sketches William Shakespeare, unlike some boys of his age, was educated, and this had a huge impact on his writing.
He utilised his knowledge of Greek and roman classics in to his plays, and this was a key reason on why he was so successful
The education of William Shakespeare continued at King Edward VI Grammar by studying the works of the great classical authors and dramatists such as Ovid, Plautus, Horace, Virgil, Cicero and Seneca .
William Shakespeare would have been expected to converse in Latin at all times in order to improve his fluency in the language - any boy caught speaking English at school was punished.
William Shakespeare may well have been involved in performing some Greek and Latin classical drama as entertainment at the end of term - this might have been where he received his first 'taste' of acting
It is incredible that he achieved so much in only 7 years of formal education. Punishments Punishments in schools were harsh and very painful - 50 strokes of the cane were not uncommon.
If a boy at the school were to be caught speaking English instead of Latin, they would be severely punished!!!
Punsihments took place on Firday's, which were reserved for Exams and Punishments if any had been earned in the week Thanks for Watching By: Varun Rao, Yu Sean Chin and Liam Trett Year 8 English Research Presentation- Education in Shakespeare's Times
