What educators are saying

Shakespeare can be a bore for freshmen in high school, but this introduction kit helped students stay engaged in the unit from the beginning of Romeo and Juliet.
My students especially loved the activity where they guessed if it was Shakesapeare or a rapper (which I turned into a vote with your feet activity)
