Think William Shakespeare meets 50-Cent meets CliffNotes.
I'm Bob Zaslow, but all my students call me, "Mr. Z." I've written the book RAP-NOTES: SHAKESPEARE'S GREATEST HITS for every middle-or high-school kid who has any fear about reading and understanding Shakespeare.
I've told the entire story of Macbeth, Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, King Lear and A Midsummer Night's Dream...in rap and rhyme. And I've hired two talented rappers to record the raps, available on I-tunes and CD-baby for a dollar.
I'm giving away my first rap, Macbeth to you! Please feel free to make copies and distribute it to your class. I'll be putting up the mp3 of Macbeth as well.
All I ask is that you email me your comments on my web site, www.rap-notes.com. Thanks. And happy Shakespeare!
