Publisher Description:

Discover Shakespeare’s best-loved plays These tales are the perfect introduction to Shakespeare’s greatest plays. Charles and Mary Lamb vividly bring to life the power of Hamlet and Othello, the fun of As You Like It and the drama of Pericles. They never lose the feel of his beautiful language and humanity and convey all of his wit and wisdom. These tales are classic literature in their own right.

This guide by Matt Whitling provides instruction for teaching ten of Shakespeare's most famous plays including Macbeth, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, and Much Ado about Nothing. The instruction is based off and requires a copy of Tales from Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb, a readable adaptation of the plays for younger students (listed below). Though the teaching tips are meant for larger classes, the worksheets and test provided are great for homeschoolers. A similar two-page worksheet is provided for each of the ten plays. Students are instructed to record statistics (like plot type, setting, etc.), describe the attributes and roles of characters, summarize the plot, sketch a memorable scene, define vocabulary, and answer comprehension questions. Answers are included. Please note that although the guide references page numbers for vocabulary words in both the Signet and Puffin Classics, that these are no longer accurate for the Puffin Classic. A four-page exam tests all ten of the plays. Most of the questions are short-answer questions, with a few matching. A review sheet is given before the exam for study. An answer key is also provided for the final exam. The back of the book includes Venn diagrams showing how Shakespeare's comedies and tragedies have overlapping themes. Overall, this guide provides great review of Shakespeare's plays and requires minimal effort from teachers. Reproducible, spiral bound, 50 pgs. ~ Rachel
