If Shakespeare Could Tweet: Transforming Literature with iOS by Lawrence Reiff on iBooks

Apple Distinguished Educator Lawrence Reiff modernizes Shakespeare in the high-school classroom with “If Shakespeare Could Tweet.” His lesson helps students understand point of view using apps like iAnnotate and Notability to manipulate original text. Imagine students reducing Hamlet’s “To be, or not to be…” soliloquy to a 140-character tweet! They then move on to using iMovie to create a film, complete with voiceover soundtrack —or they can create a graphic novel using ComicLife.

Meme Project for Modern, Text-Based Fun with Literature, Media, Any Text

The purpose of the task is for students to demonstrate their knowledge AND understanding of the literary text. This project does require a little more of students than making a meme just for the sake of doing so. It is more about students showcasing a full interpretation of the text in depth.

The Tale of Genji 源氏物語 - a classic work of Japanese literature written by the Japanese noblewoman, Lady Murasaki Shikibu in the early years of the 11th century, around the peak of the Heian period. It is sometimes called the world's first novel, the first modern novel, the first psychological novel or the first novel still to be considered a classic...I LOVE this book!!!!
