While searching for supplemental materials to use with Macbeth (yes, I’m still chipping away at this year’s 20Time project – progress is slow but happening), I slid down a podcast worm hole this week and found a completely unrelated drop of awesomeness produced by the Smithsonian Institute. If you didn’t already see Thursday’s post, click here to check out a high-quality, high-interest program about the video game industry that’ll hook our kids. So, yeah, I didn’t get much Macbeth work done, but I did have fun and, of course, I made three more videos. I’m gonna call this week good:

1.  MUG Shot Monday (Mechanics, usage, and grammar practice):
