Cork will be approaching The Bard in a very different way. Using MindConnex Learning’s Shakespeare In Bits Live! Ms Corry will be giving her students 24/7 access to Macbeth and will be able to assign her students reading safe in the knowledge that they will have all the tools available to them for both comprehension and close reading. According to Pádraig “Shakespeare In Bits has been a revelation. It has made Shakespeare far more accessible for my students”
