Format: Paperback
I love this series so much. Have used it in the classroom to great success.

The underlying idea is very simple: take the plays off the page and they make sense to all students -- the high flyers and the ones with reading difficulties. Within these books are activities and projects that are bite-sized. They allow the script to be performed and/or analyzed and/or experienced WITHOUT the students having to undertake a full-blown performance.

AND there is no dumbing down of the text.

AND you can do a little of these books or every page.

BUT your students need to have the skills to work in groups.

The primer for taking Shakespeare off of the page and getting the students on their feet. The Bard did not intend for us to read the play and answer the questions at the end of each act! "The play is the thing….' if you are tired of struggling to get students to enjoy and benefit from reading and UNDERSTANDING Shakespeare, then the Shakespeare Set Free series is for you! The rich assignments benefit students as readers, writers and consumers of complex texts! Students get to participate in "on your feet" activities that aid in understanding the play (in terms of character, plot, themes, etc) and lead to deep learning and transfer! Activities are organized by a calendar for teaching each play and its accompanying lessons. This series changed how I teach Shakespeare.

As always, Folger is the epitome of Shakespearian expertise, and it shines through the offerings in this book. As a teacher the "Set Free" series enables me to enhance my lessons and ensure that they are new, fresh, exciting, intriguing, motivating, and educational. This books gets me there when it can be difficult to do it alone sometimes. :-)

I bought this for a unit on Hamlet and loved every single activity, their timeline is a bit unrealistic for most schools because we rarely have that much time to devote to one play, but you can pick and choose and help the kids to get a great insight into Hamlet
