Scenario Assignment

[Note: When I taught at Bowie State University, I purchased a site license of the program Senario, included in the DVD version of Shakespeare's Life and Times (above), that permits users to act as directors on Shakespeare's stage. The following assignment suggested and influenced by one given by Michael Best creator of Shakespeare's Life and Times and General Editor of The Shakespeare Internet Editions. I would make this assignment in place of a research paper, firmly believing that students learned far more from this assingment that they could learn from a research paper.]
