Shakespeare Will Absolutely Make Sense with this Guide!,
This review is from: Brightest Heaven of Invention: A Christian Guide To Six Shakespeare Plays (Paperback)
For some teachers, the reading of Shakespeare may be daunting enough let alone trying to figure out the intricacies of the story AND find some good questions to ask. It's all here in this one fantastic book.
Leithart covers six plays in this book and divides those plays into manageable lessons for a classroom setting taking about a month to cover each:
The Taming of the Shrew
Much Ado About Nothing
The introduction is worth the price of the book, definitely read it! He tells you how to sensibly manage reading Shakespeare with a class:
(1) Monday: read the appropriate scene(s).
(2) Tuesday: read the commentary guide.
(3) Wednesday: answer Review Questions.
(4) Thursday and Friday: answer Thought Questions
This book singlehandedly turned me and my children into knowledgeable and devoted students of Shakespeare!
