Macbeth Lessons

Before delving into my recorded lessons of Macbeth, I suggest you read the annotated version of the text on my other website, FinalsClub.org, as the annotations therein were written by a Harvard PhD Shakespearean scholar and former adviser of mine.  As for my lessons, here is a link to the full document.  The brainstorming lesson is first, followed by our recorded online lessons, which correspond to the aforementioned full document.

Volunteer Tutoring

For the past three years, we have been engaged in a number of pro-bono tutoring projects, most notably running a homework help center at the Graham and Parks School in Cambridge, MA.  It’s fantastic and we’ve managed to help a number of kids improve their MCAS scores and prepare for the transition to high school.  Here’s a quick run-down of our volunteer activities.

I’ve also come across a fantastic Ted Talk by Dave Eggers regarding his 826 Valencia project.  Hopefully it’s only a matter of time before Veritas expands its volunteer offerings to this level…  But what kind of faux retail store to open with it?  Please share your ideas.
