Good day,
I picked interest in you after going through your short profile and demanding it is necessary for me to write to you immediately. I have something very important to discuss with you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( for full details.
Best regards,
Kristalina Georgieva.

Scanning for "fresh" ideas on teaching Macbeth.  I am intrigued with Ryan's suggestion of using This American Life for Act II. 

Last year, joined forces with another teacher to do a MacBeth unit with each class responsible to present a skit of a selected Act (We had five classes between us).  Lots of fun, students were inspired.  Used suggestions from Folger's workshops.

So, if you don't mind, what worked for you with the "I Enjoy Being a Girl, Sort of" to show how Lady MacBeth aspires to "unsex" and manipulate MacBeth?

Hi Nicole, 


I recently asked Ryan if he had any lessons left from his "Nice Genes" Frankenstein unit and he forwarded me some of your lessons. I just wanted to take the time to thank you for sharing them with me. I really enjoyed how they were organized. The two of you should present a webinar on formatting funky handouts b/c they are always so visually appealing! I especially like the comparison chart between the Enlightenment and the Romantic time period. I will be using a similar design with my junior American Lit. class. 


There was an ethical discussion handout based on the technological advancements connected to Frank which I have turned into their next research paper. I will let you know how that turns out!


Thanks again for the help! Your daughter is beautiful!

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to have such an awesome learning experience from you through your various interesting and crazy stories! I always love the opportunity for a good laugh! :) Also, thanks for all the great ideas for incorporating vocabulary, because I know that is something I always struggle with being a math major and all!

Thanks again and I hope your have a fantastic week!

Thanks for telling us your out of the ordinary stories, or maybe they are ordinary, just not to me. I cant wait to get some of my own. Any other stories would be more than appreciated. Also, I got to class at 840. Thanks for that too.

Thanks a bunch Nicole for enlightening all of us about your interesting experiences as an educator. Also, thank you for helping me think of different ways to implement reading and writing into my science lesson. Have a great day!

We are just finishing up. They are writing research papers on The Wife of Bath, feminist or failure? I would still welcome anything you would like to send though! Thanks!

Hi Nicole, I e-mailed your husband over the weekend about "The Canterbury Tales," I'm a pro with American Literature, but my new prep British Literature has me running in circles for ideas! He passed along some links for sourcebooks and mentioned "A Knight's Tale, but suggested I ask you about the speed dating idea you are teaching. I DO have the Rap version as well. Any other ideas you want to pass my way would be much appreciated! Thanks for the time! Katie

Did you know that Chris and I live about 500 feet from IMSA? And that there are townhouses in our neighborhood for sale? I am speechless! Congratulations on the new gig, too! Is Dr. Goble finished, then? Unfortunately, a change of plan...Chris' mom requires surgery, and it's been moved up, so when I'm done with Emily I'm heading back instead of heading to NYC--that will be this Sunday. If you need any help, an errand, anything to help facilitate your move, just let me know. Email me at with your number so we can chat. I insist that you let us throw you a welcome party, too, so get ready to see everyone! Kiss to the hubby!

Hi, Sweetie! I'll be in NY in a week or so. Starting Sunday, July 5 I'll be in Amherst being a poetry geek and studying Emily Dickinson for a whole week, then I'm heading for NYC and then Saratoga Springs. Tell me what you and the adorable hubby are up to...btw, are the rumors you are returning to Illinois true? Let me know!

Hi Nicole! I don't know if you saw my other message...I teach 7th grade ELA and can basically cover whatever I want, I just have to hit the skills of drawing conclusions, paraphrasing and they will have to compare and contrast poems...Thanks!

Hi Nicole,
I hope your feeling better. I wanted to thank you for organizing such an amazing conference. I learned so much from the presentations and group activities and I know realize how important it is to use media in the classroom. Feel better :)
Take Care,
