Today’s Birthday: William Shakespeare

It's April 23, and on this date in 1564, it's believed William Shakespeare was born.  No one knows his exact birthdate, but ironically, it's also generally believed that he died on this date in 1616.  Shakespeare is perhaps the greatest playwright in history, so it's no surprise that American School students can read his works in their English courses.  Students in Literature 4 read Twelfth Night, and students in British Literature read another of his works.  We are proud to include works by Shakespeare and many other authors in our English courses and are confident that having our students read and write about them will prepare our students well for college and beyond.
