2001-02's "House of Style" Project

2004-05's "Album of Style" Project

The National Council of Teachers of English mentioned our involvement in the "1984+20" project, about Orwell's novel. Scroll down towards the bottom of a long web page. I sent six student essays to the NCTE as representatives of our class's efforts (J.C., A.J., J.S., E.R., H.P. and K.F.). Keep scrolling down about three bullets below our general description, and you will then find that each student has a link to his or her essay.

Hamlet Projects

In December of 2003, two of my classes memorized 15-20 lines of Hamlet and then recited them to the class. We digitized their voices, so people could hear the result and better understand the text. You can hear them on the Hamlet Out Loud page. I then wrote an article for the Elm Farm Quarterly about the project, "Hearing Hamlet's Voice."

My A. P. Writing classes of 1998-99 and 1999-2000 created a hypertext Hamlet Page as a two-year collaboration. I wrote an article, "Beaming Hamlet Up to the 21st Century: Using the Internet to Help Teach Shakespeare," describing the project, which the New Jersey Council of Teachers of English edited and printed in their Spring, 1999 issue of FOCUS
