Student in classroom

In this lesson, the last before the Mid-Unit Assessment, students read the last part of the excerpt of A Room of One’s Own, in which Woolf writes about the stress of society’s expectations on female writers throughout history. Students examine the interaction of ideas and events, and consider how the experiences of a gifted girl like Judith Shakespeare interact with expectations of female chastity.
