    Take a look and see what buyers have said about this bundle:

    ♥ “I hesitated to buy this because of the price but it is well worth it - there are oodles of high-quality resources here that will keep me going for years to come! Thank you so much.” May 2017

    ♥ “A great variety of activities included! My students really enjoyed learning about Shakespeare!” August 2016

    ♥ “A very thorough, creative, and well presented resource. I'm sure I will be using quite a bit in order to grow student interest in Shakespeare. I really appreciate something that seems very small- that the file is named to include the date of the last update. Then I don't have to remember if I've replaced the old with the new as it changes.” August 2016

    ♥ “This year is the first time I have had to teach Shakespeare, and this bundle has been very helpful. The Shakespeare Trail, Historical Context, and Insult activities were all well-received by students. The 30-minute Romeo & Juliet is going to be a great review when we finish reading it. Thank you!.” May 2016
