Did he write, “To be, or not to be?”, “Beauty and folly are old companions”, “Et tu, Brute?” Well, take the Shakespeare quiz and let me know how you did! See the link below:
TestimonialsI 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 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 – MomEven 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.
-3rd grade TeacherThe 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 – TeacherKelso’s ability to mix the modern language with some of the original lines helps to create a play that is engaging to watch.
-Amy – TeacherThese plays are hilarious and fun!
– M. N. Oliver – MomAnyone who teaches young people can really use this book!
-R. Canfield – Teacher/MomI 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 heard it around the school for several weeks afterwards!
