Snow(Shakes)speare 2016 and Much Ado About Nothing
Overview:
Insults based on "Much Ado about Nothing" - school closing times based on act (hour), scene (minutes), lines (seconds) where the insult was in the play. The goal of the podcast is to suggest fun, creative ways Shakespeare can be used in the classroom as extensions - in this case, an extension of the "merry war" in the play that exists between two major characters.
