This site has a wealth if information about everything a person in medieval/renaissance Europe would have enjoyed for a meal, including recipes. The site not only has a trough of recipes, but also has articles and resources detailing the significance of certain foods, how they were prepared, and who would have ate them. A very interesting site for exploring one aspect of the Renaissance and Medieval Europe.

tag(s): shakespeare (131)

In the Classroom

This site would be fun for teachers with enough resources and students who were able to take a day and prepare some of these foods for a classroom activity during a unit on the Renaissance or Medieval Europe. Teachers can either prepare a recipe themselves, or perhaps have students make some as a voluntary assignment, or for extra credit!

Though it is no longer actively maintained, this site includes some entertaining ways to hook students on Shakespeare, such as Today in Shakespeare History, a daily calendar with a page of quotes from Shakespeare for every day of the year. On March 15, read the famous lines from Julius Caesar! Use the magnetic poetry page to find new ways to put Elizabethan English words into original poems on your computer screen.

tag(s): shakespeare (131)

In the Classroom

Save this site as a favorite and use it as a learning center or station - in particular, the Poetry Machine during a unit on writing poetry. A very creative and fun way to help students get their creative juices flowing. A great resource for a Language Arts and Literature classroom.

In the Classroom

In a class where textbooks may be short this is an excellent site to insure everyone has access to "The Tempest." This would also be useful for a class reading of the play. Open the site on the interactive whiteboard or projector, and click on the link that allows you to display the full play on one fluid page. From this point, assign students parts and let them read aloud. Just make sure to keep up with the scrolling as students read!
