I taught several of Shakespeare's plays during my teaching career: Julius Caesar, Hamlet, King Lear, and Romeo and Juliet. I think it is important for students to be exposed to Shakespeare's writing and the language that he uses. Many teenagers are surprised that much of the phrases we use were actually penned by Shakespeare in the 1600s.
• dead as a doornail
• eaten out of house and home
• a laughing stock
• in a pickle
• tower of strength
• all that glitters is not gold
• come what may
• bag and baggage

Art banners can be found all over Riverton, and can be seen in these earlier posts. I need to stop and take photos of at least two other banners that were added last year.
