As an educator, I am in awe of all the hard work teachers do. They do more than just educate, they maintain discipline, nurture young minds, foster curiosity, volunteer, inspire, and give hours of their time, money, and passion.
I’ve tried to make this blog a resource for teachers as well as students and since I know a lot of you have testing to do, you probably could use some quick, simple activities and lesson plans to get your class past the fourth quarter and on to the finish line! So first, here’s a bunch of my resources and lesson plans that you’re welcome to use as you will:
- My top 10 Shakespeare apps: My Top Ten Shakespearean Apps For Teachers and Students, Part 1 and My Top Ten Shakespearean Apps For Teachers and Students, Part 2
- My Macbeth Digital Escape Room: Activities for Students and Teachers: Macbeth Escape Room
- My Shakespeare Website (useful for web quests) Resources for Teachers and Students: A Visit To Elizabethan London
- Activities For Students and Teachers: “The Comedy Of Errors.”
- Activities For Teachers and Students: Mock Trial of Romeo and Juliet
- Activities For Students and Teachers: A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Also, please check out my reviews of Shakespeare movies to decide which ones are good for your class (More on that later).
Finally, here are some words of encouragement from Shakespeare himself:
O, let my books be then the eloquence
And dumb presagers of my speaking breast,
Who plead for love and look for recompense
More than that tongue that more hath more express’d.
O, learn to read what silent love hath writ:
To hear with eyes belongs to love’s fine wit.
— Sonnet 23
