Why was Hamlet such a dork? Find out the backstory with The Standard Deviants: Shakespeare Tragedies: Origins and Style. This video makes it fun to learn the long pedigree of William Shakespeare's greatest plays, using dramatizations from the great tragedies, conceptual overviews by professors, and illustrative skits featuring the usual Standard Deviants gang of wisenheimers. Learn about the birth of tragedy in ancient Greece, how the Bard came to write (and act in) his plays in Elizabethan London, what makes a tragic figure tick, the nitty-gritty on blank verse, and more. It won't substitute for reading the plays--or, better still, seeing them performed in their entirety--but it'll definitely give you an insider's edge when you're studying for the big test. --Rob Lightner

I use this video to introduce tragedy as a genre and then use it to help students learn to listen and take notes. It's a really good source of background information.

This is the best way to teach and learn - fun and play, and this is what Standard Deviants are doing. Shakepseare is closer and frendlier thanks to this DVD. I recommend it withiut hesitation.

If you liked Ishkebibble, or if you think Family Circus is howlingly funyy, then waste no time-- buy this. If you acually have a sense of humor then put your forefingers in the shape of a cross and run away quickly! This is nasty, and my high school English students never forgave me for insulting their intelligence.
