How I Use It
To explore the structure of The Globe Theater in London, England when we study Shakespeare and his works. Parts of the theatre can be viewed and explained in relation to how the plays were staged. For instance, the purpose and desire for trap doors in the floor of the stage, the balcony used in Romeo and Juliet, where the audience sits or stands, etc.
My Take
This is an interactive tool I like to use because of the visual presented. This is better than a picture in a book, more realistic obviously.
