Quick help needed: Can anyone give me the subscription information for the
British journal SHAKESPEARE IN SCHOOLS?  I'm giving a workshop for a group
of NYC secondary school assistant principals, people charged with the task
of helping their English teachers, and one of the show-and-tell items I want
to share is that journal.
 
Are there other journal titles out there that should be widely known?
 
Other teaching guides?

-Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Teaching- (SMART) is published twice

others (though I'm not sure why Canadians should pay more for what amounts
to the same postage) pay $15.  Contact Judy G. Hample, Managing Editor,
SMART, Indiana State University, Stalker Hall 213, Terre Haute, Indiana 47809.

Lively and surprising approaches range from using recent films with Arthurian
references to using "dialectical journals" to record students' reactions to
the Inferno and then their interpretations of those reactions.  Elegant
approaches to the diversity of moral attitudes ("Doing Away With Stereotypes:
Attitudes Toward 'Otherness' in Anglo Saxon Communities," by Elizabeth Girsch)
and the presence of "blue" Africans in early English iconography (read
"iconography") pull distant material close to the concerns of today's and
tomorrow's classes.  All the ideas seem directly applicable to the study
of Shakespeare.
