The Bard Isn't Hard: 10 Resources For Teaching Shakespeare

The Bard Isn't Hard: 10 Resources For Teaching Shakespeare | Literature and performance | Scoop.it
Teaching Shakespeare’s intrigues are not on the serving platter for today, there will be no Titus Andronicus’ baking boys into meat pies. We’re discussing love. Love is hard enough for a fifteen-year old to swallow.

Scott Nicholson's curator insight, April 10, 2014 2:51 AM

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.

Conflict in Literature

Conflict in Literature | Literature and performance | Scoop.it
Grant Snider contrasts the conflicts of old with the more modern equivalents. Real lives, as well as lives portrayed in literature, don’t get harder, and they don’t get easier, it’s all a matter of changing what we worry about and fight against. The ultimate conflict is when we disagree with what we’ve just read, which can lead to rage. This entry at Incidental Comics is also available in poster form....

However, because we were also looking at how imagery supports characterization, I decided to get them back into the world of Shakespeare with a look at Gertrude's recount of Ophelia's drowning in Hamlet.
