Shakespeare's plays are all pretty unique, you sympathise with some characters more than others and stuff..

Tragedies are a bit heavy, but they are interesting ;)

In 2U english we've done topic learning and Experiance ' I heard the Owl call my Name', um Power which was 'Richard III' and are doing recording at the moment 'Memoirs of a Gesiha' which is a pretty good book to study...
I prefer the ext texts though causes we did 10 Things and Taiming and at the moment we are doing Pygmalion and My Fair Lady which is great

You people are so lucky that you actually get to practice doing a comparative study...
ie.. thats 10thing and taming thing... unlike us who were just thrown into emma/clueless having no idea what to expect

i know ours is a comparative study but thats what im saying... we have never had a practice doing it so it is good for you people doing 10thing/taming or bridget/pride because you will know what to expect and look for next year
