The Chortling Bard: Caught'ya Grammar with a Giggle for High School Students.
Kiester, Jane Bell
This book transforms William Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night,""A Midsummer Night's Dream," and "Much Ado about Nothing" into adaptable "Caught'ya" sentences that appeal to high school students at any level--from basic skills and dropout prevention through high honors and advanced placement. The book makes Shakespeare come alive with sparkling dialogue and direct quotes sprinkled throughout. Each story includes all the grammar, mechanics, usage, and vocabulary a teacher needs to teach for the entire school year. The book also includes literary devices, a mix-and-match menu of Elizabethan swear words, teaching suggestions, lesson plans, and end-of-the-year tests and keys, corrected "Caught'ya" sentences, and a grammar and usage quick reference.
