The Bard

Shakespeare Club. Two weeks so far. Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet. Next week we will read through Much Ado About Nothing as well as see a live performance of the same, Richard III, and a modern take on The Tempest called Return to the Forbidden Planet.

This has been fun for us. The kids seem to love reading these well penned words outloud with one another. It certainly makes the play come to life. Reading them alone, I tend toward sleepiness, but not once have my eyelids been tempted when enjoying the lines with them.

This may be something I attempt again another year. After all, five Shakespeare and several sonnets look great on those quarterly reports! Could I say that English is done for the year? I wonder if that would fly with those superintendents? :)

It would be wonderful if we could get by with more in regards to the superintendents! oh well....this keeps us on our toes. I really enjoyed S while in high school....not sure I ever totally understood to the point my teachers would have liked.

It is fun to read. I think King Richard is my favorite. I've never read all of them though, so I can't really say. History is an amazing subject. Last year I did World History and I never completed the book, so I still have that around for a bit of extra reading in my spare time. This year i'm on American History (A Bekah). Thats very intresting also. Tell the family I said hello..I think I owe Danica a very late congradulations!

I think it's wonderful that you have a Shakespeare Club! What exactly do you do in this club? Will you have performances?

I really like Much Ado About Nothing, and the movie version (directed by Kenneth Branagh, with a great cast) is one of my top 5 all-time favorites.

Shakespeare's plays were about all I ever read from "required reading" lists. For anything else, I just listened carefully in class.
