“Whenever I read Shakespeare, I fall asleep,” a student once said. For those of you who suffer or know someone who suffers from Shakespearean narcolepsy, this is the class for you. Leave your pillows behind and come geared up to pitch puns, hurl 17th century insults, and wield a sword. Be ready to experience love at first sight, magic, madness, betrayal, and tragic multiple deaths. In the end, your fears of teaching Shakespeare will be conquered and your students will be quoting the Bard for the rest of their lives.
