Did Shakespeare write his plays? - Natalya St. Clair and Aaron Williams

Did Shakespeare write his plays? - Natalya St. Clair and Aaron Williams | English Stuff | Scoop.it
Some people question whether Shakespeare really wrote the works that bear his name – or whether he even existed at all. Could it be true that the greatest writer in the English language was as fictional as his plays? Natalya St. Clair and Aaron Williams show how a linguistic tool called stylometry might shed light on the answer.

Shakespeare Comes Alive: Apps to Create Performance - AP Lit Help

Shakespeare Comes Alive: Apps to Create Performance - AP Lit Help | English Stuff | Scoop.it
Think back to your experiences learning Shakespeare when you were in high school. Rather than simply reading the play, the teacher probably told you that you would be performing it in class. While this sounds like it might be fun, it probably devolved into a few apathetic students standing at the front of the room reading in monotone voices.

Students learn Shakespeare when they perform Shakespeare. They understand his words when they can truly interact with them. Unfortunately, most of our students aren’t actors, and they really aren’t comfortable performing in front of their classmates. How can we get our students to engage with Hamlet & Macbeth in ways that won’t bore or embarrass them?

There are some amazing tools available for iOS devices that will allow your students to create projects that force them to connect with the text in fun and exciting ways.
