I have been asked to introduce Shakespeare to a class of middle school children in an alternative school---ANCHOR LITERACY ACADEMY--in the Charlestown section of Boston. This school serves court involved youth who are at risk. That is, they have dropped out of or been dismissed from the Boston public schools. This is going to be a challenge. In looking for resource material, I found your "Shakespeare for Children" and "Sixty-Minute Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet.." Both are fabulous. Well done. They preserve the language and summarize the story in a balanced fashion. Congratulations. Many thanks.
