Excellent resource for teaching or directing Shakespeare. Great ideas for different teaching methodologies and plenty of across-the-curriculum activities. You, your colleagues, and your students will enjoy the clever means of incorporating math, science, art, journalism, music, social studies, physical education, and social issues into the study of Shakespeare.

The book is an amazing introduction to the Bard, his works and environment...a way to overcome literacy and dramatic stage fright that can open many doors..." R. Thad Taylor, President Shakespeare Society of America, Inc. Los Angeles, CA --Shakespeare Society of America, Inc.
Thanks so much for the Sixty Minute Shakespeare Series news release. I discovered the scripts about 5 years ago. As our Education Outreach department at Colorado Shakespeare Festival is dedicated to enlightening teachers and students (and the community at large) about Shakespeare s works using a hands-on philosophy I have found the Five Star Shakespeare Collection an incredible resource. Whenever teachers are looking for a truncated script, or help with opening up Shakespeare to their students, I refer them to you... Thanks to Cass Foster and Lynn G. Johnson for these terrific tools! Melinda J. Scott, Education Director --Colorado Shakespeare Organization
"Recommended for use with fourth-grade and up (though it can be used with younger students...While the authors recommend using this resource in conjunction with Five Star Publications' Sixty Minute Shakespeare series, the suggestions may also be used in any program designed to introduce Shakespeare to students ranging in age from elementary to high school, or a mixture of ages." "The tone of the book is enthusiastic and encouraging, the suggestions are realistic, and the activities are doable. Shakespeare: To Teach or Not to Teach is an excellent resource for any teacher setting out on the grand adventure of bringing Shakespeare's timeless plays to life." --Eclectic Home School Online
