    Shakespeare is on our list for next year and I'm really looking forward to it! Did I mention this is a great series of posts?

    Yes, especially live if you can manage it. Shakespeare is best live or as a play. Reading it doesn't do it justice.

    Thank you so much for this post! We just started a Shakespeare study yesterday by watching a couple dvds from The National Endowment for the Arts, who have a "Shakespeare in American Communities" education pack we had previously ordered and are getting around to using. It came with the 2 dvd's, puzzles enough for a class, (which I thought I would be teaching) 1 guide book, a recitation book, a poster and a large timeline. We have borrowed additional books and dvd's from our library, and I purchased some graphic novels and a DK Eyewitness book on Shakespeare at a thrift store. In March we are going to see a kid-friendly production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in Chicago. I disliked Shakespeare as a high school student. So thrilled that with the proper presentation, DD is not only interested but enjoying Shakespeare at age 11!
