KLIATTThese books for teachers are intended for use with the companion Picture This! Shakespeare series for students. Each resource book provides introductory activities, a group of activities for each act of the play, and activities to be completed after the play. Teachers may select which activities they want to use based on the ability level of students in their class. Each activity is easily reproducible for classroom use. All activities are designed to enhance speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills. Some activities encompass more than one skill, and all are clearly labeled. Some exercises are designed for individual response; most encourage group interaction. The editors suggest that the level of difficulty ranges from "less challenging to advanced," although the accompanying texts seem more appropriate for students who are reading below grade level. This also appears to be true of the resource books. An Answer Key is provided for only a few of the selections. For teachers looking to impart a rudimentary knowledge of Shakespeare to their students, this series should be considered. KLIATT Codes: P—Recommended. 1999, Barron's, 59p. illus., Ages adult.
