Shakespeare Made Easy

If you have been looking for a way to help your student understand and appreciate the works of Williams Shakespeare, look no further! Shakespeare In Bits brings The Bard’s most popular plays to life through cleverly animated re-enactments, full audio and unabridged text in one comprehensive package, featuring:

  • Completely Unabridged Play Text: Understand and appreciate the linguistic richness of Shakespeare’s plays with the original play text, broken into easily digested 'bits'. In-line translation helps you to understand difficult words and phrases within the context of the original play text.
  • High-resolution Animated Reenactments: Each title includes hours of high-resolution animation with professional audio soundtrack, helping you to decode and comprehend Shakespeare's fertile prose quickly and efficiently. The text, presented side-by-side with animated action, is easy to follow with portions of text being highlighted as they are spoken in the play. The integrated combination of text, audio and graphics is designed to facilitate learners of varying abilities and learning styles.
  • Character Biographies: Biographies for each cast character can be accessed from the main play or through a dedicated cast feature. An illustrated character relationship map demonstrates key characters and their inter-relationships in the play.
  • Exam Preparation: Each Shakespeare In Bits title provides a wide selection of integrated analyses and study notes for each scene to help you understand plot summaries, key themes, language, imagery and quotes from the play. An easy-to-navigate visual scene selection menu is also provided to help you to quickly get familiar with the play’s sequence of events or to jump to your scene of choice.

Shakespeare-In-Bits happens to be a very entertaining way of learning about Romeo and Juliet, the characters have very realistic personalities. My sons really enjoys. It has notes, and a preview of what will be shown, and it helps you to understand the language that is being spoken. I really don't think my boys would have read the play. They definitely would have lost interest in reading the book. I like the fact the you can actually go forward or back, if you need to replay a scene, or if you would like to skip past a part, you get to pick...(more)

My daughter loves the Shakespeare in bits videos. I like the original language and all the additional history and vocabulary details you can see by clicking and hovering over the words. She "plays" with it even when not scheduled for lessons.
I recommend getting it through co-op. My friend (who is not a homeschooler) got it directly from their site and missed the discount and was charged in Euros (which can be more costly depending on the currency conversion)

My 11-year old loves this! We've just finished Romeo & Juliet. My son loves knowing where famous quotes come from and hearing the great story. I like that he is getting exposure to the beautiful language of Shakespeare and we can talk meaningfully about prose, blank verse, imagery, etc. It's all there in these programs.
T Robinson, Co-op Member
Shakespeare in Bits has made what seemed like tedious reading, fun and live to my 14 year old son. He has enjoyed watching and listening to the plays. He enjoys exploring the links available throughout the story to help him understand the plot, themes, etc. I would recommend this to any parent who is nervous about teaching Shakespeare. We bought the bundle and feel it was a great purchase.

SIB is one of our favorite classroom additions. I would like to list just a few reasons why this program was an instant hit with us. 1. Friendly! Younger children are not overwhelmed with the topics, because it is presented in a friendly animated format. 2. Animation = 100% Shakespeare. The audio presentation is excellent and the words are true to the plays. 3. Additional understanding is offered with Synopsis, Notes, and the script available before each scene. 4. In the script, lesser known words are highlighted and synonyms are put in pla...(more)

My child, 13, LOVES Shakespeare in Bits! We have completed Hamlet and are eager to use the other titles in the bundle we purchased. Shakespeare is so accessible with this program. We go through one section (bit), reading the notes on Language, History, etc and noting definitions of words highlighted, then we read the Notes for that bit. Then we watch the animated scene with a very good understanding. You could choose to watch it first, then read the notes. Any order will work! With all the info provided right on the screen, it's easy. Th...(more)

Shakespeare is meant to be watched not read. This program allows children to see the plays as they were meant to seen. It also explains vocabulary and gives lots of background to characters. My children have enjoyed these cartoons greatly.

My 11yr old son has loved having Shakespeare in Bits. It's enhanced his understanding and enjoyment of a sometimes difficult subject. It's also a great way to memorize scenes.
Tiffany, Co-op Member
My family and I love Shakespeare-In-Bits! I'm an acting teacher, so I'm picky about drama. The actors doing the voice-over work for the animation are top-notch. The summaries, translations and character descriptions are very helpful for understanding the plays. Being able to read along as you're watching the animation and listening to the actors really drew us in and kept our attention. I asked my 11 year old daughter after some of the scenes if she understood what was happening, and her level of comprehension surprised me. I would defini...(more)

I was very skeptical about Shakespeare in cartoons; definitely not something I would typically go for. We have done Shakespeare several ways and my shelves of multiple Shakespeare resources are proof that it's not something I've been completely confident about teaching. But I do believe Shakespeare is an essential subject in a person's education, and I'm glad to have found Shakespeare-In-Bits.

I like this program and have recommended it to friends because:
1. Shakespeare is meant to be heard, not read. The voices all use very good di...(more)
