Synopsis

Shakespeare Graphics the Tempest by Philip Page, Marilyn Petit

This text provides lower ability pupils or pupils with Special Educational Needs with access to Shakespeare's plays. It offers the complete story of the play through plot summaries integrated with illustrations, extracts from key scenes and annotation.

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
