Mad Shakespeare says that "a brilliant new program has been invented, and English teachers all across the world should rejoice."
Here are some excerpts from Mad Shakespeare's software review of Shakespeare in Bits: Romeo & Juliet.
"I always find it to be a struggle to successfully incorporate technology into my everyday English lessons. But a brilliant new program has been invented, and English teachers all across the world should rejoice.
...As the name would suggest, the program allows students to go through the text in bits. This method, commonly referred to as “mini-lessons,” is arguably one of the best ways to teach teenagers anything.
...In all, the program is like Sparknotes.com on steroids. With cartoons. And Kate Beckinsale as Juliet. Most importantly—the actual text appears in front of the students as the cartoon actors perform, allowing students to interact with the original text."
