Teacher Review For Shakespeare In Bits: Macbeth iPad Edition

Our middle school language arts teacher uses this app and loves it! It was his first time last year teaching Shakespeare to students and it was a huge success, in large part due to this app. Our 8th graders our one to one with iPads.

How I Use It
Our middle school language arts teacher used it to teach Romeo & Juliet, as well as MacBeth. MacBeth was such a huge success last year, he asked us to purchase Romeo & Juliet for this school year. Both apps are in the Apple VPP program. To my knowledge, there were zero hiccups and all went smoothly with both versions of this app!
My Take
The students found it much easier to learn and understand Shakespeare by using this app. There is sound, so definitely use headphones, and this does help for students to be more hands on, and work at their own pace. If a student was absent, they could easily catch up to the class, etc.
