Author(s): William Shakespeare
Each "Livewire Shakespeare: Student's book" contains just the play so that students are able to get a feel for the text as a whole and teachers are able to use the books as they wish without being limited by prescribed activities. This text provides lower ability pupils or pupils with Special Educational Needs with access to Shakespeare's plays. It offers the complete story of the play through plot summaries integrated with illustrations, extracts from key scenes and annotation.
This series of resources for lower ability pupils preparing for Key Stage 3 is an original and engaging approach to the plays of Shakespeare. The pupil books all provide a secure summary of the play, through the use of clearly drawn cartoons and some key scenes and speeches which are printed in full... the authors have avoided being both condescending and boring by using the original text throughout and asking probing, open-ended questions which help to direct pupil responses. -- Ink Pellet 20070110
