The Bard Isn't Hard: 10 Resources For Teaching Shakespeare | AdLit | Scoop.it

Q1) Even though this website is geared towards teaching Shakespeare, do you think it could be adapted to facilitate your own learning and understanding of him and his works? Why/why not and how?

 

Q2) Shakespeare is known to be notoriously difficult to learn and is abhorred by students the world over. As such, would you argue that Shakespeare is still relevant in an English curriculum context? This question extends to not only how important his works are but also how engaging or interesting you might find them.
