Understanding Shakespeare: A Student Casebook to Issues, Sources, and Historical Documents

In Understanding Shakespeare, an unique collection of primary materials and commentary helps students and teachers explore historical, literary, theatrical, social, and cultural issues related to the play. Each chapter contains a variety of materials: essays, poems, histories, official documents, and illustrations. An explanatory introduction precedes each document and each chapter concludes with study questions and lists of suggested readings.

Looking to spice up student presentations? Look no further then PREZI! Prezi is an online, flash-based presentation creator. It shares similar functionality with other presentation programs, like Microsoft PowerPoint or Apple Keynote. However, it is not a file that documents have to "save" and they can share it on your website. Incorporating PREZI into a lesson would take that presentation from plain to SAMR (MSTAR)!!!

I would be more than happy to teach your classes how to use PREZI. Here is a quick glance at how PREZI works.
