A Study of Shakespeare's Hamlet for High School

Posted by Michelle Osborn on

As part of my Shakespeare for High School series I would like to like to cover at least one tragedy and one comedy. While we have also covered Romeo and Juliet (which is also a tragedy), for the purposes of talking specifically about a Shakespearean tragedy we are going to study Hamlet.

Seven Reasons to Rent Curriculum

Posted by Michelle Osborn on

1. You want to save money. Rent at less than half the cost of purchasing.

2. You want to try a new curriculum: Try before you buy. How often do you wish you could try a curriculum without having to pay for the whole set, and then decide you don’t like it?  You can try out our curriculum by renting it.  If you decide it is a good fit for you and your children, you have two choices.
