Romeo & Juliet - Interactive

Found this posted on Free Tech for Teachers:

An "Interactive Folio of Romeo and Juliet" has been created by the Canadian Adaptations of Shakespeare Project.  The site takes the reader through Shakespeare's text,  with certain words & phrases highlighted.  Clicking on the highlights brings up definitions of "Bard-speak," images, and even clips from classical and modern film and audio adaptations of the play.  This might work nicely on a SMART Board or projector to explain & illustrate important passages in a whole-class setting.  Could be an excellent way to jazz up the classic tale for today's students!
