Subject: MND Tools for 8th-graders
Here is a request for help from a former student of mine. Thanks in
> I am a first year teacher who will be teaching A Midsummer Night's Dream
> to my pre-AP 8th grade English classes. In an effort to keep my students
> interested in the play, I am planning on including songs and film clips
> that either allude to Shakespearean works (any of his plays) or that are
> adaptations of his works. The only film clips I am allowed to show must
> have a G or a PG rating. Although I have consulted several teaching
> resources and online sites, I have had little luck finding sources that
> meet my requirements. Does anyone have any suggestions?
> Thank you.
