  1. I had not planned to tackle Shakespeare until 12th grade. But, dd discovered Shakespeare in her poetry this semester and loved it! We went to the local used book store today and dd purchased several works and wishes to study them. I'm behind the planning on this one. What are some good study guides or programs for Shakespeare?
  2. Naxos? Arkangel? I am only familiar with these and found them while searching on Amazon.com Would love feedback and suggestions. Thank you in advance!
  3. We just listened to Jim Weiss's Shakespeare CD. My daughter LOVED it! I would like to find her some more like that to listen to and even some books to read. What do you recommend?
  4. I purchased the Oxford School edition of Romeo and Juliet for my 9th grade dd. Fortunately, I've been reading ahead of her and found that some of the explanatory notes along the text are very explicit. I will be editing with my Sharpie but hope to avoid this problem in the future. Does anyone have other recommendations for Shakespeare editions with explanatory notes.
  5. By now, you are all thinking I can't do anything for myself, aren't you? On to the next great "idea.":tongue_smilie: We are ending up doing more Shakespeare than I planned this year and are loving it. The added bonus is having my dd home to share the discussions with her brother. Anyway, I would like Swimmer Dude to have something physical to remember our studies with and frankly, a little hard work and thought wouldn't hurt him.:D History Odyssey has the student read a retelling of one of Shakespeare's plays, write their own retelling of the play 2-3 pages and then color a page from a Shakespeare coloring book. You put everything together to make a book. This is not quite up the Dude's alley. My thought is to make a two-page layout, front and back, for each play that could be stored in a pocket protector. The front page would have the title, a graphic from a live presentation, the name of the live version we viewed and a block of the Dude's favorite quote or soliloquy. The back would probably have a brief literary elements run down: plot, settings, character, major conflict, etc. We love watching the professor that does the TC lectures on Shakespeare and I thought I might include a small box with a"Peter Saccio moment." The kids always find some cool fact they didn't know while listening to his lectures. I will even let Swimmer Dude give the play a rating. There's probably not enough room for historical context and hopefully we'll hit that in the plot and setting. Are you all with me so far? Okay, here is the problem. I am not exactly a graphics genius when it comes to the computer. Part of the problem is that I am fairly good at graphic design free hand but not so skilled on the computer. Does anyone have an idea for templates I could tweak toget what I have listed above. Can I accomplish this with Microsoft Office? I would use the same template for every play.
  6. This year I have been doing a Jane Austen Lit Study with my dd and her three friends. It has been a tremendous success (we just saw a production of "Pride and Prejudice" on stage by the local Shakespeare Theater- AMAZING! ). I want to plan a Shakespeare Lit Study next year to be done in the same format. What do you consider on the "Don't Miss" list for Shakespeare? We will probably have time to do between 6 and 8 plays. Please list the ones we shouldn't miss out on! Thanks!
  7. It is currently on tour. Here is a link... Macbeth I'd like to take my oldest son, but if the sexual relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth is emphasized, it would probably embarrass him and it is very important to me that it be a GOOD GOOD GOOD experience for him. I know, it is the ASC, and it is bound to be good, but some of their shows certainly don't shy away from the bawdy, and like I said above, he would be mortified. I saw such a good production as a kid of Macbeth, outdoors... it ignited a love of Shakespeare in me. I want him to have that too. So, give me your recommendations for performances in Virginia. And does ANYONE know of anyone who will be performing Henry V or Macbeth this spring?
  8. A fun way to introduce grammar stage children to the Bard is through the "BBC Shakespeare Animated Tales." Go to www.youtube.com and type in keywords "BBC Shakespeare Animated Tales." Enjoy! :)
  9. Does anyone have a list already? If not, I'd love to create a list of movies or plays that have been modern adaptions of Shakespeare's plays, or have used Shakespearean themes. Here's my two so far: The play "All Shook Up" is The Twelfth Night. "The Lion King" is thematically related to Hamlet. Note that I'm not looking for filmed versions of the original plays (Like Sir Laurence Olivier's Hamlet), but adaptions. I'd prefer to find movies/ plays that are PG-rated and under. TIA! Alane
  10. I am grateful to the members of this board who have generously offered their support in providing resources and advice in developing a literature class for my senior that I did not expect to home school. We have had numerous conversations about Shakespeare in particular on this board and the payoff has been delightful even if it has completely derailed my existing literature plans.:tongue_smilie: I would like to lay the blame on Eliana.:D After all, she was the one that told us about the Hamlet performance a few hours drive from out home. We dropped all of our literature at that time and shifted our focus first to MacBeth and then to Hamlet. Even though the show we had tickets for was canceled due to bad weather, my oldest and youngest continued to enjoy their Shakespeare studies. Swimmer Dude, who is not really a reader, chose on his own to read the entire Oxford School Shakespeare version of MacBeth. (Thank you, thank you to the Michelle that recommended these books.) He plans to memorize at least part of the "To be or not be" soliloquy. Again, his idea. My dd is on a kick to see several versions of Hamlet for comparisons. My BIL and his companion gave our family tickets to see Two Gentlemen in Verona this past weekend performed by a small, local company. This was one of the recommendations EmilyK had. The theater has three rows of seats on all four sides and the performance takes place in the middle of the floor. It was a full house with no more than 40 in the audience. Dh and I were seated across the way from our kids. It was a pleasure to watch my oldest son sit on the edge of his seat for the entire performance with a big grin on his face. When the performance was over, all he had to say was, "More Mom, we have to see more." He is the only one that isn't home schooled. Dh and I have decided that our coffee and wine budgets could use a little pruning in order to make way for more live performances. I don't know why we didn't think to do this earlier.:D So our lit plans are awry and everyone is happy. Next weekend is our first annual Shakespearean Insult Festival. Who knows what we will do after that. All of this just to say it has been one of our best homeschooling experiences thanks to you all. Oh and Happy New Year's! Here is wishing you many joyful home schooling adventures in the coming year.:party:
  11. Bear with me, but this is just one of those cool surprises that comes from homeschooling that I could not have expected... The double-edged sword of SWB and Jim Weiss has aroused my DS9's interest in Shakespeare. So we read the life story of him and listened to JW's "Tales from Shakespeare" recording. Loved it. Decided to memorize some lines. DS memorized the "band of brothers" speech from Henry V. Loved it. Tonight he said, "mom, please can we have pizza and watch Shakespeare?" Uh...sure. So we had family movie night on Tuesday and watched Much Ado about Nothing. LOVED it. The acting was phenomenal, and he understood it! We stopped here and there to explain a few things, but the context was so easily understood, and it was so funny! He wants to watch Hamlet tomorrow and Henry V this weekend. Go figure. So, at age 9 my kid loves the ol' bard. Who'd a thunk it? :001_smile:
  12. I would like to include Shakespeare next school year. I'd like to start with reading a biography, I'm thinking about Bard of Avon. And then I would like to cover a few plays, maybe 5 or 6 total. Which plays would you say for are a great place to start? Which adaptions by which authors of these plays would you recommend? And if you've done a Shakespeare study before, how did you plan it out?
  13. My noble attempt at making Fridays 'light & fun' includes a half-day devoted to Shakespeare. Is anyone else doing Shakespeare Fridays? I'd love to share ideas. I'm keeping it simple and using the ideas here to help get us started. Thanks in advance. :001_smile:
  14. If you had to pick your top four favorite Shakespeare plays - 2 tragedies and 2 comedies-what would you pick?
  15. Can anyone suggest help with this? Also Sophocles, Chaucer, Keats, Homer. Thanks
  16. If you had to choose the top 5 passages of Shakespeare to memorize, what would you choose? I'm not looking for one-liner quotes, but longer passages. Eg: Macbeth: To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing. Macbeth Act 5, scene 5, 19–28 I'm asking because I am thinking about teaching Shakespeare to my middle school kids and having them focus a lot on memory. Because of the adult themes in so much of Shakespeare, I wasn't interested in them memorizing Shakespeare in the grammar stage, but before they get to the stage when they don't want to memorize, I'd like to work some Shakespeare in. I'd love to hear what you think are the most important passages. (You don't have to have 5!)
  17. What is your favorite Shakespeare comedy and why? And if we see it in film, how bawdy is it likely to be?
  18. My dd will be going into fifth grade. I've read that Shakespeare can be introduced this year. Anyone have a recommendation as to were to start? Which Shakespeare would you recommend a fifth grader read? I have a book I found at the thrift store which has ten Shakespeare stories- The Tempest, A Midsummer's Night Dream, As You Like It, The Merchant of Venice, King Lear, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Othello. I'm only familiar with a couple of these myself. Is there one that would be most appropriate for a fifth grader?
  19. We are going to see a production of Love's Labour's Lost on Saturday. We usually like to read a story version first; then see a film version and then read the text. I have ordered the WTM recommended Oxford School Shakespeare version of the text and the Kenneth Branagh film but, looking in my Charles and Mary Lamb and Marcia Williams books, I can't find a story version to start us off. I know E Nesbit wrote some Shakepeare tales but did she write a version of Love's Labour's Lost and is it online? Many thanks in advance.
  20. How would you sum it up in a sentence or two? What is its message? Who was responsible for their deaths?
  21. I was trying to find out about the BBC animated Shakespeare, when I found that the programs were all available online for free. Jimmie (of Squidoo homeschoolong fame) has organized all these videos in one convenient place. Just go to her Squidoo lens and scroll about two-thirds of the way down the page for a link to the videos. They are on youtube, but look OK. http://www.squidoo.com/shakespeareforchildren Elsewhere, I also found this downloadable paper model of the Globe Theatre -- best for older dc, as pieces are small. http://papertoys.com/images/globe-color.pdf
  22. My niece is studying Romeo and Juliet. The teacher is trying to cover it in the last two weeks of school. My niece is feeling frustrated, because she isn't really understanding it. The teacher gives them a packet that they need to complete each day, and they work on it in class AS they read it out loud.:confused: Does anyone have any good resources I could recommend to her? Books for younger children that tell the story more simply, perhaps? Guides that explain some of the passages? Websites that might give additional help? She'll get a decent grade by filling out the paperwork, so I'm just looking for something that will help her understand what she is reading and give her "the flavor" of Shakespeare.
  23. to have a full year of studying Shakespeare? Which resources would you use and which books would you consider "important" for the child to study?
  24. Where might I find a list of general vocabulary to be used in a unit study of Shakespeare? Not particular to any one play, just to the subject of Shakespeare. Any ideas? Thanks!
