Middle School Monday - Shakespeare

This is the second year of our teen book club and we've just finished a term looking at King Lear. The girls and I explored general ideas, such as iambic pentameter, and ideas specific to the play; 'storm' in King Lear, 'despair and redemption'. I'll tell you a secret though...shhh...I cheated.  All my good ideas came from here.

The Folger Library has a huge number of lesson plans for each play and I think most could be adapted to work with a smaller family group or individual child; I adapted them to use with 8 girls.

The Folger Library also has a site for younger sibs here.

Check it out!
