'Hooked on Macbeth' is a fresh and innovative approach to teaching Shakespeare's gripping tragedy.

It uses a memory hook system as the basis for remembering all the major events, themes and characters of the play and vividly demonstrates how easy it is for students to retain and recall key information.

This unusual approach engages students because it utilises the power of their imaginations to 'hook' their interest in the events of the play, and provides ample opportunities for them to demonstrate the effectiveness of their learning.

Students will be amazed at how much of the play they will be able to remember, understand and apply using this clever and, at times, oddball approach to studying Shakespeare.

This is not the usual way students learn, but it is an exciting technique that encourages them to see their learning abilities in a completely new light.

The techniques provided in this book include teaching students:

- a highly effective memory hook system
- right-brain activation techniques
- easy recall methods
- creative,imaginative approaches
- comprehensive coverage of the play

and contains pages that teachers can print to turn into handy student workbooks.

Complete with a step-by-step guide to teaching the play, HOOKED ON MACBETH is a must for teachers looking to provide students with an invigorating and literally unforgettable learning experience.
