Rap-Notes: Shakespeare’s Greatest Hits, Vol. 1: Think “Cliff-Notes meets 50-Cent meets Shakespeare” Kindle Version

Rap-Notes Shakespeare's Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 Think Cliff-Notes meets 50-Cent meets Shakespeare KindleThe complete stories of five of Shakespeare’s most popular plays in rap and rhyme.

Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth, King Lear, A Midsummer Night’s Dream like you’ve never read them before.
And you can download mp3s by professional rappers on I-tunes.

Teachers and students read and listen to the rap before they read the play because it gives a real overview of these plays in a way that cuts through some of the difficult or archaic language and goes right to the heart of the stories themselves…with humor and rhyme. They’re fun to listen to and easy to remember.

One of the biggest hurdles students must overcome is understanding Shakespeare’s language. Rap-Notes helps give students a context for each of the five great plays in a memorable, fun way that many students listen to over and over again. Result: before they read the play, they know tons more about it than they would have without Rap-Notes.

It’s a great way to get started on that Shakespearean play. And, when used with the mp3s on CD Baby or I-tunes, students can use their auditory senses along with their visual with the addition of lyrics, music and a hip-hop beat.

Shakespeare was never more fun to learn. Get the Kindle version at…
