I realize that this is probably not the sort of response requested, but
I have utilized this list and other web sites for my own education on
Shakespeare. I am, as I'm sure I've mentioned before in the plagiarism
conversations, a sixteen-year-old student in South Texas and the very
basic rudimentary education we receive in this school on Shakespeare
does not meet my needs so I have taken it upon myself to learn. I know
that there are many high school English and Theatre teachers here, and I
want to say that I'm sure you give your students a deeper knowledge and
appreciation of Shakespeare, and that is a precious and wonderful thing.
Okay, time to step off my platform.           -Sally Schutz

Comment:        Re: SHK 10.0036  Q: The Electronic Classroom

There are many WWW sites useful to a Shakespeare class. Several of my
electronic syllabi are on line at
<http://www.faculty.fairfield.edu/faculty/rjregan/rregan/rrhp.htm>. (The
spring course will not be up for a few more days.) I let my students
choose between print and WWW sources for weekly response papers, since
there is still some resistance to electronic doings.

I also use a CD-ROM of the Complete Works (using the Moby Shakespeare
public domain text) to project the text on a large screen, next to which
is a VCR/monitor on which I can show performance tapes (BBC, films).
Students like this immensely. One can highlight parts of the text and
freeze the tape for commentary and questions. Absent a CD-ROM, one can
use the MIT Complete Works page, which also has an excellent search
engine. Individual scenes can be downloaded and stored for later use.

One of the many ways that I have included Information Technology into my
Shakespeare courses is by beginning them with three substantial
PowerPoint presentations:

1) Shakespeare's Life and Work,
2) Shakespeare's Theatre, and
3) The Transmission of Shakespeare's Texts.

These presentation include images (including some pictures I took this
past August while I was in the UK of Stratford and of the restored
Globe) and text (scanned from quartos and the First Folio).
