As an alternative to prefab, you might want to offer a pair or small
group of your students the opportunity to research and construct a model
of the Globe as one of their assignments (accompanied by short papers
on, e.g., the research process, problems associated with reconstruction,
implications for performance of the space modeled)--with the condition,
of course, that you get to keep the finished product. For the students,
it's not only a welcome change from the more usual essay topics, but a
valuable learning experience as well. (Any student who takes on such a
project under the misapprehension that it is a "bird" assignment will
soon discover otherwise.)

Hello,

A word of warning about the do-it-yourself models of the Globe Theatre
on sale at the RSC. They're INCREDIBLY fiddly! You have to cut out tiny
pieces of cardboard and do all sorts of intricate things to them. It's
not for amateurs. I gave up in the end, having spent many a tedious hour
wedging intransigent bits of cardboard into unlikely places. It really
isn't worth the hassle. Life's too short.

Yours,
David Nicol
