Shakespeare eBooks from The New Book Press

April 24, 2016

For ClassTechTips 2This month marks Shakespeare’s 452nd birthday and you’re bound to find information popping up about this great playwright. Teaching this 17th century writer to 21st century student can be tough – that’s where Shakespeare eBooks come in play. So you’ll certainly want to check out this new resource!

Shakespeare eBooks

The The New Book Press’ WordPlay Shakespeare eBook series breathes new life into reading the Bard, by putting a filmed performance next to the text. Now, actors “walk onto the page” making comprehension easier and quicker — no dumbing down. English teachers will tell you, Shakespeare did not intend for his plays to be read, but to be seen. With WordPlay, students read it, see it, and get it.

Now replacing traditional paper texts in middle and high schools across the US, the eBooks work on any device with a browser and an internet connection. They also work in iBook format for Macs and iOS devices. Most students use the books on their smartphones. This makes classroom use even easier, regardless of the device your students choose to use.

Visit the iBookstore to purchase single copies of Romeo and JulietA Midsummer Night’s Dream, or Macbeth. For streaming licenses, volume discounts, teacher testimonials and free test licenses, visit WordPlayShakespeare!
