This is an ideal tool for any person teaching Shakespeare as part of the language arts/literature curriculum because it: (1) uses an active and investigative approach; (2) develops collective and collaborative learning; and (3) encourages the use of games, music, videos and paintings.  

This resource was developed to help teachers incorporate the richness of Shakespeare's works into the core curriculum.  The author recognized that difficulties involved, particularly understanding and speaking the language, and sought to find a way to make the process practical and enjoyable.  In fact, the point of the book is the process itself - not producing a play or memorizing passages.  By investigating the context of the play, understanding how the words were to be spoken, and putting these principles into practice, it is hoped that students can better appreciate each work.  (Peter Reynolds was closely associated with the Shakespeare and Schools Project at the Cambridge Institute of Education and is Principal Lecturer in Drama at the Roehampton Institute, London.)
