An Internet WebQuest on the Shakespearean Authorship Question

 
 

Introduction

Welcome members of the jury as you hear a case that has been debated for more than 200 years. Listen with great care as you hear about the man who claims to have written more than 30 plays and produced over 200 sonnets and poems. Listen further as evidence is supplied for contenders that also lay claim to the authorship debate.

Who really wrote William Shakespeare's plays and sonnets? The obvious answer to this question is the actor from Stratford-upon-Avon who goes by the name of William Shakespeare, or is it Shakspere like it appears on his baptism record and as a signature on his will?

The evidence for the other candidates all seem very persuasive until the next set of evidence is presented which seems to confound the problem. But with all of this information out on the table, conspiracy theorists just might be on to something. Sit back and sift through the evidence and see which authority offers the most conclusive proof in your estimation. In this way you will become more informed and able to formulate an opinion for your judge.
