Simon & Schuster Shakespeare Set Free: Teaching Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth and Midsummer's Night's Dream

Excited, interested and involved are all words that describe what we want students to feel about Shakespeare; and with the Folger Shakespeare's Library's Shakespeare Set Free series, that just might be the case. Designed by people passionate and zealous for Shakespeare's language, plays and poetry, every page communicates a warmth and through, detailed understanding of what Shakespeare really is all about.

A series of essays helps set the stage; written from a number of perspectives, angles and thesis', you and your students will learn about the nuances and history that's apparent when reading and acting in his plays. Yet, the "Fiercly Held Belief" is put forth that Shakespeare should not (and was never meant to be) confined to pages, words and dictionaries, but rather acted out and full of real, applicable life. Each play includes day-by-day lesson plans that will immerse students within the works; sections covered in the lesson, objectives, any preparation, activities and actions for the class to participate in, main lesson, homework and reinforcement are all included. And as you're teaching, you might just find that teaching Shakespeare is less "Double, double toil and trouble" than "softest music to attending ears!"

This volume covers A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo & Juliet and Macbeth. 274 pages, softcover.
