Teaching Shakespeare!

A Folger Education Blog

Take a [digital] bow

As a follow-up to last week’s post about the Facebook Much Ado, below are my three favorite entries. As you can see, there WAS some original language used!


 And even when there wasn’t language by Shakespeare, it stayed fairly true to the intent. For example, almost all of Doug Berry and Verges Headborough’s exchanges had me giggling on the metro, and John Zaragoza’s moody posts were as anti-verbose as the original character was.

I was a little disappointed that there was no fake death for Hero. If we’re talking internet rumours, that would have been a doozy! All we got was that she had locked herself in her room and wasn’t talking to anyone. Hardly the dramatic climax we were looking for!

Did anyone follow along, or heard anything from their students? A full account of the newsfeed begins HERE.
