This book is a great introduction to teaching Shakespeare. Some of the reviews said this book is "tired" and "doesn't present anything new." However, as a first-time teacher of Shakespeare, this book has given me a lot of confidence and ideas that have already been successful in my classroom. I highly recommend this book to somebody who is looking for a good starting point.
I have a relatively old edition of this book so some of the ideas are outdated but it's a great springboard for trainees or NQTs like myself. I believe a new edition is to be released this year; might be worth buying to see what new ideas Gibson has :)
