New Resource

Bard in a Box (on sale for only $4.95!) from Levenger is my latest resource. Index-sized cards contain one-two line quotes from Shakespeare's plays on one side and explanations and examples on the reserve side taken from Samuel Johnson's Dictionary.


Why stand these royal fronts amazed thus?
Cry havock, kings!
King John


havock interj. [from the noun.]
A word of encouragement to slaughter.

I envision some uses for these cards already:
  • memorization lines to precede reading the play
  • vocabulary bonuses
  • Name that Play game

Since Bard in a Box is on sale, the sale price plus shipping is less than the retail price alone. Worth it, in my opinion.
