Shakespeare Magazine was published by Georgetown University and Cambridge University Press from 1996 to 2003. I was the founder and editor-in-chief with Nancy Goodwin and later with Martha Harris.

I worked on this interactive project with Peggy O'Brien when she was at Cable in the Classroom. It is a smart introduction to the printing and performing of Shakespeare's texts. Many of the images are from the Folger Shakespeare Library.
Film School is a teaching unit I designed and created for the Independent Film Channel. It is not intended for film study classes, but rather it is a way for English teachers to seamlessly integrate film and film making into their current classes. Some of the technology might seem dated, but the concepts are still sound and have been tested in my own classroom.
