Great Webinar!
This is so informative! As a drama teacher it is so hard to find a way for students to connect to Shakespeare! I think that this is a great tool and I will for sure be trying these ideas! I really like the Shakespeare Soundtrack!
Thank you for showing how to invite the drama into your classroom with modern re-writes, I like the film version of their scenes, creative comics with current slang and expressions.

Great presentation and ideas...I never have understood any teacher asking students to read Shakespearean plays alone.
