Romeo and Juliet
Microwave Shakespeare is the perfect introduction to the play for all pupils now having to study the full play in its original language. Each play is retold as a straightforward, pacey narrative in chapter-book format. Plus each book includes visual information to help pupils get to grips with the plot, the key characters and their important relationships in the play. The stories are all presented in the period of the play but with modern day language.
These are ideal for reluctant and struggling readers but also perfect for getting all pupils comfortable with the play before they go on to study it in its original form.
