Teacher Testimonials

This is an excellent resource for any teacher's Hamlet curriculum. My students enjoyed a different take on a classic Shakespearean play. I highly recommend it for any high school English class studying Hamlet.

I have tried many film versions of Macbeth to help my students understand the Bard, but this is a great supplement to their studies. It explores not only the language, but the motives and emotions of the characters, and does it in a satirical, talk-show format, with "commercials" and songs. The students really get it!

As an English teacher for 15 years, I have never found a resource that effectively grabs the students’ attention like this one. I was able to do my Macbeth unit in two weeks, and they learned more than if I had taught it in six weeks. It was awesome!

Your site is gorgeous. I am teaching Hamlet to 5th- and 6th-graders, which is a tall task, and your layout gives all kinds of possibilities for explaining lines and passages from the play. Students love playing around with the videos. Just beautiful work. Thank you.
