This video will take you through an excerpt from Shakespeare's "Macbeth," Macbeth's monologue beginning "If it were done when 'tis done" with text and visual annotations. Line by line, you'll explore Shakespeare's gift for language and invention.
A big thank-you to the following resources. Without such resources, these videos would not have been the same: The New Cambridge Shakespeare, No Fear Shakespeare, the Oxford Shakespeare, and the artists whose work appears in my slides. Please get in touch if you'd like to know the source of any illustration, clip-art, photograph, or animation.
Description: Alas the time for play, but not silliness, is over. Before we move on to our next exploration, we wanted to reflect on some of the recurring themes we saw over the past 8 weeks. Here are some choice moments from our wise and wonderful colleagues about play and acceptance. FYI: like a good Marvel movie, keep watching after the credits for some teacher/parenting tips from our experts. :-)

Description: What do chocolate pudding, chopsticks and an awesome contestant make??? The Acceptance Game! Watch educator and Graphic Novel/Comic advocate Ronell Whitaker help us explore ways to choose acceptance while having a whole lot o' fun.
"Acceptance is a thing that is huge for me…when someone's existence is accepted, when it's acknowledged to be a true thing…it dignifies that person, and gives them an opportunity to access humanity in a different way." Ronell Whitaker

(PLAY: Interview 1)
Description: It’s rabbit vs rabbit in a series of bouncy races that lead librarian and "Reading While White" contributor Elisa Gall into pondering the many facets of play and how they can lead to choosing acceptance. Which rabbit will prove victorious—blue team's nattily bearded Petrabbit or the green team's plucky underdog Eleapsa? Watch and find out!
"Play… has to be modeled by adults. It has to be talked about openly. And I think there needs to be freedom to talk about what each player needs. Making a mistake through play is a great way to practice making a mistake in the bigger world. It's one of the many ways that we can foster relationships and create the habits of capability. The habits can be nurtured and fostered early. Play isn't going to solve the world's problems but it can open hearts and it can open minds and it can be one step on the path towards awareness." --Elisa Gall
