Teaching Shakespeare with Purpose: A Student-Centred Approach by Ayanna Thompson & Laura Turchi

What does it mean to teach Shakespeare with purpose? It means freeing teachers from the notion that teaching Shakespeare means teaching everything, or teaching "Western Civilisation†? and universal themes. Instead, this invigorating new book equips teachers to enable student-centred discovery of these complex texts.
