How about extracts from Peter Ackroyd's "Shakespeare The Biography." I found this 
book most useful for creating the background life of the times -- particularly the 
description of Shakespeare's first entrance to London. And the chapters are 
mercifully short!

But I agree -- a directly chronological approach is not necessarily the best. A 
simple wall chart can display all the important dates -- along with what else 
was happening at the time -- and leave the way clear to spend more time on the 
plays themselves.

Good luck, anyway!

I replied off list to Dr. Sohmer, but for everyone now: Feel free to make 
whatever used you'd like of this collection of photos:

I took them while in England in February and March of this year.
