To achieve badges, some online resources can be extremely helpful. These include online tools to help analyze literature, citation style help, and repositories full of Shakespearean external, historical, or contextual resources. Listed below are some of several resources to employ. Remember that some of these resources require your UCalgary login.

The only exceptions are tweets (with the #engl205 hashtag), in-class/in-tutorial activities, D2L discussion posts, and any posts or comments you publish on the course blog (these are recorded differently).
