Shakespeare should be studied in high school. His plays teach students about the language, culture and history of the Elizabethan era. The Shakespearean language that is taught throughout his plays has been adapted in the every-day language that is currently used. It is very important for students to learn about the origination of the language we use today so that it is easier to deduce the definition of a word. Secondly, the history that high school students learn while studying Shakespeare is imperative. The research that is done during a Shakespeare unit would provide students with knowledge about the Elizabethan era which was the age of exploration and expansion, the 'Golden Age'. This era brought many changes and colonisations to the whole world. This period was when the 'New World was discovered and the English Empire was furthered. Finally, the culture during the 'Golden Age' is another aspect that students would learn when studying Shakespeare. The culture during that period was much different to the culture of the 21st century. It is crucial for students to be able to compare the two periods and find the similarities and differences so that they know where their cultures were adapted from. In conclusion, high school students should certainly be studying Shakespeare and his many works during their schooling years. Students will learn the language that was used in that era, history about the current world and the culture in the Elizabethan era. Wouldn't you want people to learn about you and learn the history of our era in the future?
