The Wisdom the Elizabethan Age - 4/16/2015

Essential Question:
How can we apply the wisdom of the Elizabethan Age to our lives today?
1. Finish Quotes from Queen Elizabeth I - Read and discuss each of these quotes from Queen Elizabeth I. Determine the meaning of each of these quotes, and then think of which of these nine quotes is most interesting to you.
  1. I know I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too.
  2. Though the sex to which I belong is considered weak you will nevertheless find me a rock that bends to no wind.
  3. I would rather be a beggar and single than a queen and married.
  4. I have the heart of a man, not a woman, and I am not afraid of anything.
  5. There is one thing higher than Royalty: and that is religion, which causes us to leave the world, and seek God.
  6. Those who appear the most sanctified are the worst.
  7. Do not tell secrets to those whose faith and silence you have not already tested.
  8. One man with a head on his shoulders is worth a dozen without.
  9. Brass shines as fair to the ignorant as gold to the goldsmiths.
2. Help the Dress Code Committee - they're gathering data to present to administration. Can you help by filling out the survey below?

HW: Create an Instagram-style or Pinterest-style Elizabethan quote (from Queen Elizabeth I or from Shakespeare) image using Google Drawings (or the application of your choice), and post it as Blog Post #5. Below the quote, explain what the quote means and (in 1-2 sentences), show it applies to your life specifically, or junior high/teenage life in general.
There is a "non-creative" way to do this as well. If you simply do a Google Image search for a quote from Queen Elizabeth or Shakespeare, you can use that image (meaning you don't have to create the image yourself), but then you should do more writing (a 4-5 sentence paragraph) explaining in more detail what the quote means and how it applies to your life specifically, or junior high/teenage life in general.
