Synopsis

Shakespeare Graphics: A Midsummer Night's Dream by Phil Page, William Shakespeare, Marilyn Pettit

Using a carefully edited text and a unique cartoon-strip format to link important passages, the Shakespeare Graphics series brings to life Shakespeare's most popular plays, making them accessible to students of all abilities. - Each book covers a whole play through key scenes interlinked with plot summaries and specially designed illustrations - The illustrations promote an understanding of the entire play through visual representation alongside Shakespeare's original language

Reviews

This series of resources for lower ability pupils preparing for Key Stage 3 is an original and engaging approach to the plays of Shakespeare. The pupil books all provide a secure summary of the play, through the use of clearly drawn cartoons and some key scenes and speeches which are printed in full... the authors have avoided being both condescending and boring by using the original text throughout and asking probing, open-ended questions which help to direct pupil responses. Ink Pellet does a great job of visually representing the play through illustrations and simple, clear text... The visual support is particularly useful for pupils with language difficulties, reading difficulties and Autistic Spectrum Disorders. Seeing a plot mapped out visually is a useful prompt for pupils and helps them engage with the text and understand the main issues. Teachit Newsletter
