Are you looking for a great way to introduce or review Shakespeare with your high school students? This activity could be just what you are looking for!

The activity is built around 24 of Shakespeaere's 38 plays (though you could easily do it with more plays or fewer plays). It includes two parts: (1) small portions of scenes for each of the 24 plays for the student(s) to identify (2) 24 Paintings/Engravings - 1 associated with each play. 

Students can work individually or in groups to see how many of the scenes they can identify, and then how many of the paintings they can properly associate with each of those scenes. 

Please note: The first half of the activity is in the pdf with the instructions. The second half is available as both a PowerPoint and a second pdf - so you can decide which format works best for you. But either way, please be sure to download both portions of t he activity.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
