Shakespeare Uncovered Shakespeare Uncovered combines history, biography, iconic performances, new analysis, and the personal passions of its celebrated hosts to tell the stories behind the stories of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. The Series 2 resources (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, and Othello) were created in partnership with the Folger Shakespeare Library. The resources for the first series (Macbeth, the comedies Twelfth Night and As You Like It, Richard II, Henry IV and Henry V, Hamlet and The Tempest ) were created in collaboration with an advisory board comprised of high school educators and Shakespearean scholars. For more Shakespeare resources, visit The Hollow Crown: Shakespeare's History Plays. O this learning, what a thing it is!

Ode to Poetry – Websites to Generate Student Poetry Online One of my favorite units to teach is poetry. The playing with words, the cleverness of students, and the discovering of new ways to describe a simple object always gives me a thrill. I mean really. How often does one get to use words like hanker after to replace want or quick on the uptake for clever? DIY Solar Lamp: Make Your Own Eco-Friendly Sun Jars The principle is simple and seductively clever: solar lights that store energy during the day and release light at night. These can be purchased ready-made in a variety of colors (yellow, blue and red) but they can also be built at home. A simple, less-technical approach involves buying a conventional solar-powered yard lamp and then essentially harvesting it for key pieces to put in a jar. This is simply a way of taking an existing solar lamp design and appropriating its parts to make something more attractive for display around a house or home.

Poe was one of our greatest poets! How to Create an Awesome Summer Reading List Here's my one bit of advice on the subject — summer is for reading stuff you *want* to read, not stuff you *have* to, or stuff you feel like you *need* to. I review books for my web site, and I can't say that I ever enjoy them enough to carry them to the beach, you know what I mean? That's a job. And then at times I'll get into an "I'm too unproductive" mood and suddenly feel like my free time has to be spent learning important things, so I'll go read business books and self help books and other things that I feel like I'm reading because of some specific benefit I need to achieve. But when I hit the beach it's going to be stuff like Girl With The Dragon Tattoo on my Kindle. I will gain nothing from the experience other than whether I liked it or did not.

Do not stand at my grave and weep Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep is a poem written in 1932 by Mary Elizabeth Frye. Although the origin of the poem was disputed until later in her life, Mary Frye's authorship was confirmed in 1998 after research by Abigail Van Buren, a newspaper columnist.[1] Full text[edit] Free Mockingbird Unit I have slowly been adding curriculum to the site, yet already THOUSANDS of educators have downloaded my Romeo and Juliet Starter Unit. I’ve found many of you are interested in my Famous Facebook Profiles for Character Analysis, which I have also included here with characters from To Kill a Mockingbird. Just like my very popular Romeo and Juliet Unit, this packet has quizzes, midterms, and a final exam, as well as a few strategies and handouts that might be helpful for new teachers, or teachers who are overwhelmed and unsupported (which seems to be almost all of us, right?). This is not a full unit, and not meant to be representative of how I teach TKAM. There are just a few things here that I think would be a good place to start for good teachers to build on. I remember when I was a first year teacher thinking I would kill for a couple handouts, a quiz or two and a final exam.
