This 148-page resource supports teachers and students working towards AP and IB examinations. It is a line-by-line analysis of the play at a level, and in a manner, that all senior students will find accessible and engaging. It asks, of each scene, ‘What’s really happening here?’ and offers detailed answers – while challenging students, by means of brief but penetrating writing tasks, to find answers of their own. It also provides essay questions in the style of AP and IB written examinations. From an AP Central Teachers’ Resources Review: “The first of several differences from Spark, Classic, Monarch, or other guides is that the Wordsmith Study Commentaries are much longer. Another is the personal voice assumed here – reassuring, conversational, and encouraging.” It is available in both a Teaching Copy (this one) and a Student Edition (with an Answers Booklet at the end) – see separately.
