TEEM Evaluation

Summary of Professional Review
The title enables classes to focus on particular aspects of Shakespeare plays supported by short clips from a variety of plays. Some of the clips allow the same scene to be compared between versions while others allow a particular theme to be examined in a number of plays.
All of the clips are supported with a great number of detailed worksheets, which help to structure the learning. They are very useful in structuring the analysis of the scenes and are likely to have real value to the teacher helping structure the lesson.
It covers many aspects of Shakespeare’s work: different adaptations, language, imagery, genre and audience as well as an image folder, which contain film stills and a selection of film posters enabling the advertising of Shakespeare to be examined.
