What Shakespeare can teach you about…EVERYTHING…Okay, I find this subject rather humorous. It seems that anywhere you look on the web, there’s some site that can tell you how Shakespeare can teach you about fishing, or karate, or making money, or whatever! So, I thought I would just peruse the web and see what Shakespeare can teach you about…. here are just a few I found… enjoy!
TestimonialsThese plays are hilarious and fun!
– M. N. Oliver – MomThe only difficulty I’m having with Brendan’s versions, is that the students can’t get enough and I am having difficulty getting them to do other things. It’s actually a problem that I wish upon all teachers.
-cnaken – TeacherI recently received my copy of Brendan Kelso’s Shakespeare’s Macbeth for Kids, and I can’t wait to use it in my classroom (6th/7th language arts).
-Mary E. Moore – TeacherI heard it around the school for several weeks afterwards!
-sscragg – TeacherI highly recommend this book to anyone that is looking for a fun and interactive way of learning or teaching Shakespeare! Love, love, loved it!
-Cora – TeacherStudents can perform the play in language familiar to them while incorporating Shakespeare’s most famous lines.
-dbklover – Homeschool EducatorI read “Julius Caesar” first with my 8 year-old son and he loved it. After all it had ghosts and sword swinging… so what’s not for a boy to love.
-Pam T – MomAnyone who teaches young people can really use this book!
-R. Canfield – Teacher/MomKelso’s ability to mix the modern language with some of the original lines helps to create a play that is engaging to watch.
-Amy – TeacherEven though Hamlet is a tragedy, for us it was more like a tragedy + comedy=tramedy!! Parents loved it. I will definitely do the play again with my new 3rd grade class next year.
