Well-organized and practical. I could begin incorporating ideas found in this book today. Many of the ideas could be used for a variety of literature.

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I have a relatively old edition of this book so some of the ideas are outdated but it's a great springboard for trainees or NQTs like myself.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 :)

This book contained some really useful ideas for teaching Shakespeare to different age groups. Some of the ideas, although over ten years old seem modern and easily adaptable for different situations and environments.

This book is proving to be a great resource as I teach a Shakespeare class this year. Gibson provides many ideas for getting students involved in Shakespeare in a variety of ways.
