I'm teaching AP Literature for the first time, and first picked up Springboard Shakespeare for Macbeth. I loved it, so then I picked this up. Ben Crystal has created an easily accessible, truly helpful way to read or watch Shakespeare. He even breaks it down so that if you are already headed to the theater, you can just read a few quick things to help you understand some of the points, or if you have more time, he gives you much more information. He also does a fine job of explaining how to approach the language, which is particularly helpful for my students. Really, it is a fantastic resource.
