OK, so I've gone and made a directory of all the posts thus far so one can easily search the group. Hopefully we will find this useful as we continue talking about how to Make the teaching of Shakespeare pop. I really wanted the stuff above to be in a table but the formatting demons are not going to let it be a pretty table. Enjoy, Ry:)

Hey Shakespeare people, it has begun!

I'm trying to manually sort all the discussion forum posts in the text space above like I did with the American Lit group. Phase one (the bank) is complete. In the meantime, it would be really great if other folks could drop some R&J knowledge on dmass and Nick!

I've never actually taught the play but I might be the only English Teacher on the planet who hasn't.

Please check here and post your ideas and resources.

I can't wait to see what the MC POP people have to share on this one!

You all rule!

Thanks for the tip on following! I had no idea about that, so I always forgot what interested me or what I even asked! And loving the Wordle idea!

In case you're not following the Julius Caesar discussion (click "follow" at the bottom of a post if you want to keep track of it) you've got to check out the Wordle Allison Branch created for Julius! Allison, you should use that as a model and have kids make Wordles for other characters in the play? Please keep sharing Wordles!

Just thought I'd bring up an article from some time ago back in high school. Mr. Goble brought us the best interpretation of Shakespeare with a little "Smack Down" lol

An article/post on the end of "Reading Rainbow" in Teach with Moving Images sure to sadden all the English teachers out there...

If you're not in the graphic novels and comics group you might want to check out this post with a link to a comic on Multiple Intelligences.
