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.

One of the main themes in Macbeth is deception. There is a detachment between appearance and reality. Hypocrisy is everywhere The first scene of the play highlights this. We are introduced to the witches. The quote “Fair is foul…filthy air” portrays that what is ‘fair’ or good or wholesome for humans is ‘foul’ or unwholesome for the witched and vice-versa. ‘Filthy air’, an atmosphere that humans would shun, is the kind that the witches enjoy. Nothing is what it seems.
