We use "Shakespeare-In-Bits" to enhance our study (which includes reading the plays out loud)with audio and visual. My 14 year hold finds it very beneficial...and entertaining. Now that we've finished "Romeo and Juliet" it's on to "Midsummer Night's Dream"!
Joya Matheus, Co-op Member
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)

My 11 year old daughter and 8 year old son absolutely love this program. They are only allowed to watch TV (DVDs) one day a week and instead of watching their DVD on Saturdays they ask to watch this. I love hearing them discuss their favorite Shakespeare play. Hers is Midsummer Nights Dream, his is Julius Ceasar. They discuss characters and plot and they've put on their own Shakespeare inspired plays for my husband and I. I have told everybody about this and the feedback has been amazement. What parent wouldn't want their kids to be exci...(more)

This has been a phenomenal way to bring Shakespeare -- in its original -- into our homeschool! My 11-y/o asks (begs!) to do it every day. We love the videos, the definitions, and the explanations. What a creative way to engage children with classic literature. And the customer service is wonderful as well. There are five plays so far, and our only concern is this: when's the next play coming out?! Bravo -- and thanks! :)

We absolutely loved Shakespeare in Bits and have recommended it to my neighbor who teaches High School English! Shakespeare was meant to be seen, not just read, and this makes it fun and so easy to understand! I love that you can click on theme notes and history notes, and we liked the character index pages with all the stats.
Sarah D, Co-op Member
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
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)

My children (age 9 and 12) love this product! The "bits" have fit perfectly into our Shakespeare unit and it makes understanding the language a breeze. I found when I read aloud their minds would wander but the ability to follow along with the text and the entertainment value of the cartoon keeps them absorbed in the story. I wish there were more titles available!
Sara H, Co-op Member
I was very pleased with our version of Midsummer Nights Dream. I was not sure how I was going to handle teaching Shakespeare as it has been a very long time since I have read it. SIB was easy to use and very informative. The animation is very basic, but just fine for what you use it for. The information and translations were so helpful and interesting. I would gladly use it again.
Barb, Co-op Member
My son is not only gobbling up Macbeth like it's candy, but he's also sharing every gory detail with his tween friends as though it were his favorite tv show. To say that Shakespeare in Bits is a hit is putting it mildly. The program has so many great features that it is hard to know where to start. My son loves the animated dialogue, but the character profiles, rollover word definitions and cultural contexts have also really helped the play to come alive for him. I often find my son quoting Shakespeare during the day and grinning like a maniac...(more)
