Explore Shakespeare iTunes iconThe Explore Shakespeare app introduces students to the first scene of six of Shakespeare’s plays.  The students can compare and contrast the initial scenes of Romeo and Juliet, Othello, Macbeth, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Twelfth Night.  The scenes are accompanied by beautiful visuals and audio performances from actors such as Kate Beckinsale and Fiona Shaw.  The complete plays can be purchased in the app and then students can analyze and explore the entire play including images of performances, word clouds to analyze the text, and a timeline to see how the action flows through the play.  Students can pick a character in the play to easily see their speech and to better understand the relationships between the characters in the play.  This can be a great introduction to Shakespeare!
