Romeo and Juliet- Research!

In order to help us understand the concept of fate, you are going to journey back in time to Elizabethan England to discover what people really believed about fate controlling their lives.

Your task is to select a topic to research that is connected to Elizabethan England that connects to the reading we have been doing in class.

You then need to create a blog post on your individual blog that presents the knowledge you have gained and explain how it has helped you to understand the play Romeo and Juliet or why the concept of fate is presented so heavily in the script.

I encourage you to include links, images and videos in your research post but the knowledge you gain should be expressed in your own words.

If you are struggling to get started, begin by defining what the concept of fate is and see if that gives you any ideas. You can also look back over some of the quote work we have done to remind yourself how our main characters refer to fate.
