Overview

The first 30 pages cover resources: a list of Euripides' most taught plays, an essay on translations, several bibliographies of recommended readings (subcategorized for convenience), and audiovisual and computer-based resources gathered from the website, drjclassics.com. The second section offers 16 classroom approaches.
