Final Thoughts
My expertise in Shakespeare spans back to the 1990s when I studied Shakespeare in college which culminated in a trip to London where we watched many of the plays.  Currently a group of homeschooled teens gather at my house each week as we explore a play together.  I also have 20 years of teaching Shakespeare to my own large family.  
Homework Offered
Learners will have activities to complete throughout this course that will enhance learning. They will be required to listen to an audio version of the play as they read along. They will read/listen to (on average) 3 or 4 scenes a week.
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
I will be showing clips of various parts of the play in the video portion of this class.   Students will also be directed to watch clips on their own.  I will preview each clip and choose the ones that are appropriate for young viewers.   Also Shakespeare being Shakespeare, this play was meant for an adult audience and references to sex and violence are present throughout the play.  I will inform parents when they need to take extra care. 
I will send a resource list upon enrollment.  This list will have online versions of the play as well as links to purchase the play on Amazon.  It is highly recommended that students listen as they read.  Librivox.org has free version but I suggest finding one in your local library's online catalog or purchasing the play on Audible.   Students will be instructed to watch a full length version of the play.  I will list where these can be streamed when possible.
