Shakespeare's plays are notoriously hard to teach, because students have trouble reading and understanding Elizabethan English. Teachers are therefore always on the lookout for “user friendly” audio-vidual aids and classroom activities with student appeal. “A Taste of Shakespeare” is our response to this need. In the series, actors/narrators tell the story of the play, comment on the characters and main issues, and act out key scenes. Each video is under an hour in length and comes with a Teacher's Guide. -- 1. Hamlet, 2. Merchant of Venice, 3. Romeo & Juliet, 4. Midsummer Night's Dream, 5. King Lear, 6. Macbeth, 7. Othello 8. Love
