  1. The local Shakespeare company is performing the Merry Wives of Windsor this summer. DD is already hinting about wanting to read a children's version. Any suggestions? Also do you have any recommendations as to a good film version? Thanks!
  2. I now have around 30 of the BBC plays on video, I have both of the TC series by Peter Saccio on video, and I have Asimov's book. Is there another book that would be helpful? Maybe Teaching Shakespeare by Rex Gibson? I have the Oxford school series of Henry the V..... maybe a couple more of those to read? How do I put this all together? I have a few ideas but have no clear direction.... any feedback would be appreciated.
  3. I have a 5th & 8th grader this fall. How have you used Shakespeare with your children? How have you made it fun? I also want to pull some of it in for my 2nd grader- Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi, my ds and I will be traveling thru Lamb's Shakespeare this year. I wanted to develop a format for this to help us enjoy it as well as learn a little bit, too. Any suggestions would be welcomed! What I intend to do so far was to ID dramas and comedies and what that would be like in a Shakespeare play. Thought we would take parts and read those parts to each other. Maybe act out a little (can't see my ds doing this, but I'll give it a whirl). List characters and their qualities. Of course list any time, setting and discuss the main storyline. This is all new to me, so I welcome any help from experienced moms! b
  5. I'm getting ready to read Hamlet with our 12th grader, and am hoping for a recommendation for a good movie version. Which one do you prefer and why? Thanks in advance! Lynn
  6. Hi, We are doing 4 Shakespeare plays this year and I am going to use the TC dvds. I will have ds listen to the first two lectures to set the stage, so to speak. The first actual play that is discussed (in the next lectures) is one we are not covering-- If you have used this, can you tell me if it's ok to skip around and only cover those lectures that are about the ones we are reading?
  7. So what are the movies that are the retelling of Shakespeare? West Side Story and Kiss me Kate are easy ones, Romeo and Juliette and Taming of the Shew. So do y'all know of others? How many can ya list and what play is the movie from..... Have at it all you movie buffs :D
  8. I'm looking at the BBC TV Collection, anybody seen it? Any others you would recommend (maybe not as pricy as the BBC TV one)? Thanks for any input,:bigear:
  9. Has anyone study Shakespeare? Could you share which curriculum or system (books, method) did you use to cover this subject? Last year I thought I had decided to use Hewitt LLC, but this year I have been thinking about Teaching the Classics. Could Shakespeare be done with TC? More than something structure I want it to be a time to enjoy reading and discussing the books without the pressure of knowing that we are reading the books to write an essay. Could I get away without any Shakespeare writing? I still have time to think, but I would appreciate your inputs, specially of those that had study Shakespeare already. Thanks in advance.
  10. for ages12 and up and what resources would you use. if you have done this can you share what you did, thanks
  11. Forget fathead and stupid. How about, you "mammering, onion-eyed miscreant". An English teacher at a high school in Indiana has assembled this list which will delight those who love words. If you prefer to be insulted, you can go to the Shakespearean Insult generator and click the "insult me" button. A novel way of getting your squabbling children to practice new vocabulary. Jane
  12. We are beginning a short summer module on Shakespeare and I would like to maybe watch a Shakespeare movie with the kids. They are 11 and 12. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
  13. I would like to study some Shakespeare this year and wonder if anyone has any suggestions of what they've used successfully. Thanks in advance.
  14. It's from Washington State University's English department: http://www.wsu.edu/~delahoyd/shakespeare/ My girls are writing an essay for Omnibus on A Midsummer Night's Dream, and I was a bit disappointed with the depth of the discussions on this particular selection. It seems like Omnibus is moving a bit too quickly through the three Shakespeare plays, and one of the questions was on the role of imagination, story, and fiction in the play. My oldest was having a difficult time tying it all together, based upon the Omnibus discussion, and so was my middle girl. I gave her a slightly different assignment, because she was having trouble with the original assignment. Her assignment is now the character and role of Puck in the play. This website appears to delve into the Shakespeare plays quite thoroughly---at least the printouts that I obtained for A Midsummer Night's Dream are a fairly thorough discussion of the play. Anyway, this might be a useful resource for some of you who are studying Shakespeare with your kids!
  15. I've got a few things on my shelves as read alouds, but I'd like to spend at least the second half of the year focusing our literature study on Shakespeare. He's already watched movies of "Much Ado About Nothing" and "Midsummer Night's Dream" and enjoyed both of them. Thoughts? Any other suggestions for Shakespeare for next year? My ds is a strong reader--he's finishing up the second of the Harry Potter books right now for his fun reading--but he'll be 6, ya know?
  16. I just can't get the story! Does anyone have any suggestions, other than handing the movie and the book at my son and telling him good luck (can you tell I'm ready for summer to be here so we can be done!) Thanks for any input you can give - I've read some of the easier overviews on the web of the book, but I just can't seem to wrap my hands around this one. I love literature and doing this course with my ds however, Shakespeare has always stumped me.
  17. We're almost at the end of our Omnibus II studies, and we'll be doing A Midsummer Night's Dream, Henry V, and Richard III. I know what to use for Henry V, of course, for a film version, but could use recommendations for the other two. Are there any good film version? If so, what year/actors/actresses? Thanks!
  18. My son has a mother who has been dragging him to Shakespearean productions for some time. Ahem. He has seen everything from the Royal Shakespeare Company perform Julius Caesar to highschoolers doing Romeo and Juliet. Given a familiarity with many of the major tragedies and comedies, I would like to turn to the histories. He has watched Brannagh's Henry V countless times, so I think reading Henry IV, Part II, would be a good selection for the background on the Prince Hal's break with Falstaff. But what other play would you recommend for a young man who particularly loves history? (Understanding, of course, that Shakespeare's versions of "history" are not necessarily historically accurate.) Richard III is one of my favorites. Or should we do both of parts of Henry IV? And if we do that, should we begin with Richard II since it is part of the Bolingbroke Cycle? Any Shakespeare fans or English majors wish to chime in? Thanks, Jane (who has a hard time making choices when they are all good!)
  19. http://www.columbian.com/news/localNews/2008/02/02212008_Shakespeares-kids.cfm Has anyone heard of and/or teach No fear, Shakespeare? http://nfs.sparknotes.com/ If so, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!!
  20. My dd is a sophomore and has to do a term paper on Shakespeare. The paper is on "Midsummer Night's Dream" but she also has to include biographical and historical information. She has spent all weekend working on this. I ended up letting her stay home today because she now has a cold and is very run down. She stayed up until almost 1:00 Saturday night and I made her go to bed at 11:00 last night. She has to come up with one more internet source today to finish her first 10 source packets. She is supposed to cover a list of information but has come to a standstill. She has already spent 2 hours this morning trying to find a website that would work out. She needs to find 5 different pieces of information on the one website. She can't get information from places like Wikopedia or About.com. She did an online search and most sites link her to places like that or are useless. Do you have any suggestions for a good website that she could use? I've spent the last 1/2 hour searching for one myself and I have the same problem as she does. Here are a few of the topics that she has to cover: major events in which the book is set and attitudes toward those events, time period in which the book is written and attitude toward those events, when and where the play was publicized and how it was received.
