This page of links to Internet resources is intended to help you save time selecting the book you're going to study with your Terminale L - langue de complément next year, prepare your lessons and sequences, and advise your students on where to do research and look for help on the Internet. Just take your pick! (NDLR : Sorry for the mess at the bottom of the page. Methinks Webzine Maker has had an excess of links and that, surfeiting, the appetite has sickened and so died! I did try to fix this bug but what's done cannot be undone.)

Shakespeare for the Developmental Reader by James Ramadei. "My curriculum unit is designed to help make the classroom instructor more aware of the readability of a Shakespearean text for developmental readers." "“Macbeth” is used for specific examples. A detailed sequence of activities stresses the importance of the introductory lectures to the success of the project. Exercises in translation, understanding poetic language, and creating a “Shakespeare Radio Hour” are also included. Most important is a glossary of Early Modern English that lists words commonly found in all of Shakespeare’s plays."
