Tales from Shakespeare
Is a series of simplified stories taken from the works of William Shakespeare written in direct form to encourage students to become active readers.
The format includes an introduction to the elements of literature and drama, strategies for reading fiction and drama, grammar questions based on the stories, guidance on how to be an active reader and a biography of William Shakespeare.
All this contributes to making his works accessible to the reader in a way that has previously been difficult.
Additional features include a glossary of literature, vocabulary (meaning in context) and an activity book accompaniment of questions and suggested answers.
