What people are saying:

You are bringing [Shakespeare] alive, and I think that's so important, because at school so many of the children...they can't really link with Shakespeare because they teach just his works, but you need to really know about Shakespeare as a whole, his life, his world, and then you can access his works. And that's exactly what you're doing.

I assigned... "Did Shakespeare Play Sports" to give my students a bit of background on all the sports references in Lear. They LOVED your video. I'm going to assign more!
