I'm guest posting today on iHomeschool Network about ways to energize your studies of Shakespeare. Even when I was young, I was fascinated with the writings of the Bard. We've recently been blessed by reading and memorizing Shakespeare together in our home school. Sometimes, even when you love a subject matter, it can be challenging to communicate that with your children.
While Shakespeare might seem like an ancient writer to some, his writings are still studied today because of their impact on modern culture. You'd be amazed to see how much of our vocabulary and quirky sayings stem from the Bard's word-smithing. The challenge is that studying Shakespeare isn't for the faint of heart. The words, ideas, and situations aren't simple to follow, and that can discourage a student of any age.
Here are five easy ways to energize your Shakespeare studies in your homeschool that will make your kids hungry for anything Shakespearean.
