Another option includes viewing portions of each play in modern language to help guide comprehension of the material. The Notebook portion of the site offers study tools that have comprehension questions and includes the ability for students to highlight and annotate the text. Finished notebooks can be saved, shared, and exported to teacher accounts. Select any play to begin; at the top of the page, you will find links to the materials, including a summary, the number of videos, toggle glossed words on or off (alternative words for items in the text), and notebook activities.

tag(s): england (52), literature (221), plays (26), shakespeare (92)

In the Classroom

This site is a must-have for teachers of Shakespeare! Engage students by sharing the video performances to help students understand key events during any of the plays. Share and point out the glossed (bold) words to help students understand difficult language. Find the tool for glossed words in the top menu to turn it on and off. Have students answer the comprehension questions as a formative assessment for their self-reflection and to guide your lesson planning. This site is perfect for use in remote classrooms or as a flipped learning activity. Assign portions of the text to students to read before class discussions. Using myShakespeare in this way offers many tools for students to view the material in different formats as they complete the reading. Use Flip, reviewed here, to enhance student learning throughout your Shakespeare unit by asking clarifying questions and have students post video responses. Extend learning further by asking students to create short video explainers of different scenes of the play using Binumi, reviewed here.

Do you need resources for teaching drama? Drama Toolkit is a one-stop-shop for games, strategies, and lessons for teaching drama. Created by drama therapists, the website includes many ideas for incorporating the Arts with children and teens. Choose the games section to find activities sorted by objectives such as thinking skills, trust, and concentration. Other parts of the site share ideas on how to incorporate dramatic strategies and offer a free lesson plan for download.

tag(s): acting (19), plays (26), readers theater (11)

In the Classroom

This site isn't just for drama teachers; it offers many ideas for use in all classrooms. Take advantage of the games section to find team-building, getting to know you, and listening skills activities. For example, use the game "Change Places If..." within a variety of academic topics. In math class, use the prompt for students to change places with others when they hear the correct answer to a problem within a series of answers or change places if they can share a tip for a problem-solving activity. When teaching social studies, play this game to have students change places if they can provide information on a date in history or tell a fact about a famous person. Use this same game as a review activity when preparing for quizzes and tests. Another set of activities helps students work on voice and dialogue skills. Use these ideas to promote students' oral reading skills. Use Flip, reviewed here, as a video recording tool for students to assess their reading improvement by asking them to read a passage before participating in voice and dialogue activities, then again after these lessons.

In the Classroom

Take advantage of these free lesson plans and classroom activities to integrate art into your everyday classroom activities. Consider coordinating lessons with your school's art and music teachers. Expand upon the ideas found on this site to bring other art forms into the lessons. For example, take advantage of poetry resources and interactives found at ReadWriteThink, reviewed here, and have students create diamante, acrostic, and haiku poems relating to your lessons. Enhance student learning further by asking students or groups of students to create webpages sharing their learning activities using a resource like Carrd, reviewed here. This very simple tool allows users to add images and text to create a beautiful website using the provided templates. Be sure to ask students to include a reflective writing piece describing their learning throughout your unit. Take learning to the highest level and ask students to design and create a series of podcasts using Anchor, reviewed here. Ask students to discuss their learning activities, and also hypothesize on different outcomes of experiments when changing elements or activities. For example, if creating a podcast discussing changes in matter, have students share their thoughts on how the room and outdoor temperature affects outcomes. What if they used juice instead of water? Would the change from ice to liquid take the same amount of time?

Use edpuzzle to upload the video then add questions to help student comprehension or as a starter for further exploration. Have students interested in music and theater create their own production of Space School Musical (or their original space production). Allow students who aren't interested in being featured in the production to create scenery, be authors and add additional information, or help videotape and share the finished project. Enhance learning by having other students create video explainers using a video creation tool like Typito, reviewed here. Use these explainers as part of your ongoing assessment of student learning in place of a written report.

Eleanor Amplified is a podcast about a reporter who crosses land, sea, and air trying to discover the truth about an evil corporation. Each episode runs less than 15 minutes and recreates the feel of radio dramas from the past. The author states that the four significant lessons learned from the project are "Don't be greedy, ambition has its limits, commercialism can have side effects, seeking truth and speaking truth is important in and of itself."

tag(s): behavior (43), character education (74), creative writing (118), journalism (68), listening (67), podcasts (59)

Roadtrip Nation inspires young people to find their path in life by sharing how others found their life passion. PBS shares this journey through the eyes of participants as they interview leaders from many different career paths.

High school students have the opportunity to participate in road trips by applying through the Roadtrip Nation website.
