Shelves: read-in This graphic novelization of Shakespeare's most famous -- but maybe not his best -- play absolutely stunned me. I've already read the play twice and seen I-don't-know-how-many recreations on stage, in film, and on television, and so I confess my expectations for this newer interpretation were quite low.
What fresh air could a graphic novel possibly breathe into a story so common it's become a cliche? You'll be surprised. Or at least I was. For one thing, the artwork is fabulous: beautiful, inven This graphic novelization of Shakespeare's most famous -- but maybe not his best -- play absolutely stunned me.
For one thing, the artwork is fabulous: beautiful, inventive, playful, modern. For another, the novel uses modified English that communicates Shakespeare's themes clearly but doesn't water them down. This version of the play will be an exciting tool in my classroom -- already I wish I had bought thirty copies instead of just one -- but more than that, it is a piece of art in itself.
It's that good. Highly recommended, even if you're not an English teacher who, like me, is just looking for stuff to help him teach the play for the first time.

When teaching Shakespeare, there is a highly performative quality. With Romeo and Juliet, I would have the class read through each act together, with students following along as different characters. Then, after we have read the act, I would break the students up into groups and have each group create their own performance of the act.
In doing this, students who enjoy performing will be able to really grasp this lesson, and by putting students in groups, the the fear of performing for some will be limited. After the groups have performed, the students will write a 5 sentence summary quick write on the act. In writing the summary, they are practicing their Blooms summarizing and synthesizing skills.
For each act they will do this, and on a piece of paper they will continuously be adding their summaries as a 'log' that will be collected at the end of the play. Romeo and Juliet relates to the concept of struggle in the sense that the story questions man vs.

It literally has nothing to do with the illustrations or fact that they did it. I guess once you go Shakespeare you can never go back. As an English teacher, the value is apparent as the words are amended to be understandable to anyone, but as I read it, it felt stiff, blatant, and un-Shakespeare-like.
Yes, I know that that is the point, which is why it was okay. It does its job. However, it's not something that provide Not the biggest fan, though I've only read one of the No Fear Shakespeare's. However, it's not something that provides entertainment, rather it serves a purpose as an alternative for those that don't wish to spend brain power on understanding Shakespeare.
May 01, Jessica Mocha added it Shelves: art. This book is great for students who really cannot understand Shakespeare, but you still need to teach the play. This would be a great introduction to Shakespeare to younger students who don't really need to read the play in the original text.
It's also great because it is a graphic novel so students will be intrigued by it. Gallagher's whose to blame strategy goes great with this play because it gets them thinking because it is not straight forward. The students have to explain why they think p This book is great for students who really cannot understand Shakespeare, but you still need to teach the play. The students have to explain why they think people are to blame, not just state they think that person is to blame which promotes critical thinking.
An addition to this strategy would be to have students who have blamed different people try and convince the other student of their answer and change their opinion. So its a two-fer. They work on critical thinking and persuasion.
