SuperScholar shows just how relevant Shakespeare is today. Do students want better vocabularies? Read Shakespeare; he added more than 1500 words to our language which have become common in our vocabularies. His characters were so compellingly drawn that their names are now synonymous with character types. And since movies draw the attentions of students more often than plays, just point out through this graphic how many movies are based on Shakespeare plots. Then you might ask students if they can think of any other movies that Shakespeare influenced. Once students see how Shakespeare lives in modern language and thought, they may be quick to point out examples they find as they read his plays.
