Researching Early Modern English has provided me helpful background knowledge in understanding the English language. Similarly, it taught me how fragile language is, shifting and changing due to current events. Because of this, it is important for me to teach my students language by combining it with real world events,past and present. Additionally, seeing how much language alters, I will stay up to date with my students' language and will allow them to express themeselves in their unique styles and dialects when appropriate in the classropm.
