In your first term of study, you'll be working with Dr L-J on Shakespeare. I would like you to complete a short piece of written work before you arrive, as a way of focusing your reading. You need to have a copy of David Bevington’s Arden edition of Troilus and Cressida (which is the set text for your Faculty Classes in the Easter Term, 2009) and to read it with considerable care, including the notes, sources, appendices, &c, so that you're well prepared for the Faculty Shakespeare classes. There are new editions of Shakespeare appearing all the time, with the Arden 3rd series being almost complete now, and the New Oxford and New Cambridge editions also giving almost ‘complete coverage’. For these classes you will need your own copy of the following texts: Ovid, Metamorphoses (Penguin)

ConnectED – Déjà vu All Over Again Earlier this week, I was fortunate to have an invitation to the White House to attend the President Obama’s announcement of the Future Ready Schools Initiative as part of the administration’s ConnectED program. One hundred school superintendents were also in the audience as part of the first-ever Superintendents’ Summit at the White House, which served as the kickoff to the initiative. During the ceremony the superintendents signed a pledge – on their tablets – that proclaimed their commitment to ensuring their districts were Future Ready with broadband connections to the classroom, digital content for their students, devices to support the curriculum materials and professional development for their teachers so they are supported in using technology effectively for teaching and learning activities. What this part of the administration’s ConnectED initiative recognizes is that leadership counts when change is happening. Image by K.W. Barrett, via Flickr (CC By 2.0)
