How I Use It
I find this resource to be especially effective in the planning aspect of unit completion. It provides numerous activities, lessons, discussion topics, etc. that the teacher can use as-is or augment to their students' needs.
My Take
Overall, I find this to be an excellent resource especially for those new to teaching Shakespeare or when teaching a new play. It serves as a "jumping off point" for teachers new to the Shakespeare experience or for those looking for a way to jazz up an old unit.
