Mr. Trivett from Charlotte NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Shakespeare Made Clear

My students need 60 copies of "No Fear Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)", and 4 teaching resources to facilitate instruction on the play.

I teach college prep 9th grade English at a high poverty high school in North Carolina.

While college-bound students are expected to read and understand the classics in literature, Elizabethan prose (writing from Shakespeare's day) is very difficult, even for the best of students.

By using a parallel text, students will be exposed to the original text of Romeo and Juliet with a line-by-line modern translation on facing pages. These books will enable readers to "bridge" Shakespeare. Many who would never have attempted Romeo and Juliet will now read the play and will begin developing skills to compete with their peers in the college classroom. The four instructional texts will enable me to reach students at all ability levels and challenge all readers to comprehend and embrace Shakespeare.

Your charitable donation will enable students to feel a sense of pride in having tackled Shakespeare. Further, you are helping students appreciate the original text and language while fully understanding the play through its parallel modern translation. May many glad tidings be upon thee (translation: Bless you).
