Brief Description of the Site:
Atomic Shakespeare is a search engine for the complete text of Shakespeare's plays. It enables readers to connect words and passages into collages of text and "build a new Shakespeare, a word at a time." The site allows users to take Shakespeare's work and recombine parts to create their own "Shakespeare."

How to use the site:
This site represents the power of the World Wide Web to create completely new types of learning environments. The site can be used as means to introduce readers to an otherwise difficult text. By assigning readers the task of linking together passages that interest them, teachers can use Atomic Shakespeare to engage their students and illustrate both Shakespeare's use of words and their students' own creativity in reading.
