Shakespeare at Large

Excuse me while I put on my "Nerdy Teacher" hat . . .

. . ah, that's better.

I'm so excited about this program from Mind Connex called Shakespeare In Bits. Here's their description:

"Shakespeare In Bits brings The Bard’s most popular plays to life through magnificently animated re-enactment, full audio and unabridged text in one comprehensive package."

So awesome. This isn't just the usual just-because-its-technology-it's-good bullshit. This program actually helps students become better close readers and also reminds them to think about Shakespeare's words in a visual way (that is, in their original context!).
