Lesson Summary

In this lesson, you have learned about King James I and some of the influence he had over the arts and playwrights like William Shakespeare. You will demonstrate your understanding of this lesson by answering research questions and creating a shield for your own coat of arms.

Step 1: Research heraldic symbols of the Royal Coat of Arms of King James I and answer the Royal Coat of Arms Investigation Questions in complete sentences.

Step 2: Emblazon a shield of your own based on your values and lifestyle:

  • Incorporate what you have learned about heraldic colors and symbols to design your shield.
  • Also, give it a modern twist by including symbols that represent your current interests (a golden eagle listening to an iPod, for example).

You can use any program you’d like to create your shield, including:

  • design software on your computer
  • web 2.0 tools

Write a paragraph of at least five sentences explaining how all of the elements included (shape, color, and symbols) are representative of your life and your values. Your paragraph should include proper grammar, punctuation, and other language conventions. Be prepared to use your paragraph to present your shield to your instructor during your Discussion-Based Assessment.

Add your answers to the investigation questions, your shield, and your paragraph to the Symbols of Kings: Establishing Context worksheet.
