Shmoop has recently added a boatload of new Video Activities to its Teacher Guides that teachers can use to supplement their teaching methods. Whether doing an analysis of 1984 (and Casey Affleck thought his Big Brother was a tough act to follow), Romeo and Juliet (the original Edward and Bella) or To Kill a Mockingbird (sure, if you want PETA on your butt), Shmoop has the videos that will have teachers covered.
In all, 26 new video activities are available—all Common Core-aligned—and many more are slated to be added soon. Don’t be surprised if, before long, Shmoop is even offering a video with a detailed analysis of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Because everyone knows that what makes that book so popular is all of the allegorical subtext.
