I wanted to share with you a work-in-progress, but exciting website: BardBytes. BardBytes, aptly summarized by its title, is an effort to bridge the gap between the Elizabethan Era and the 21st century classroom by providing educators with modern Shakespearean resources. Resources are categorized into history, tragedy, comedy and poetry, and then by individual plays.
Resources are updated in a blog format, so you can subscribe to the blog for new resources or check back for new posts. The current website has a number of great resources for usage in your classroom, including animations, infographics, online games, interesting graphics and useful websites. Check out some examples below and see more at the website.
