I originally bought these so my son would have some exposure to Shakespeare I was pleasantly surprised when he retained the information and even did some role play later during his free timeMy son and I really enjoy using these classic worktexts They are easy to read hold my son's attention and do a great job of introducing new vocabulary My younger son (K level) can also answer some of the easier questions which is a huge boost to his confidence There is little prep time involved with this curriculum since all the information is contained in each chapter My only regret is that I did not find these worktexts sooner!
