These adapted plays allow students to enthusiastically read, listen to, and discuss Shakespeare's characters and story lines. The plays promote growth in confidence, oral development, and teamwork as students read through and rehearse the plays together. As well, students with a wide range of reading abilities, including those who are less confident readers and ESL students, are able to volunteer for key roles. Overall, the program provides valuable opportunities for students to shine in language, communication, and a variety of other skill areas. 80 Pages.
