‘Quite simply multimedia at its best’ CD-ROM Now

‘We use the BBC Macbeth, which we find much better for our learners than other versions. With the BBC version, students are more likely to use the disk on their own’ BECTa

From the Back Cover:

Complete text and audio of the play plus excerpts from the chilling BBC video starring Jane Lapotaire and Nicol Williamson. Background information explores the sources for the play and Scotland. GCSE set text for SEG, WJEC, NICCEA and future SATs text.

CD-ROMs motivate students to learn: illustrations, audio, video and text all come together in a package that is entertaining as well as informative.

The extensive background information is much more colourful and accessible than a printed introduction. Coverage includes: characters, plot, performance, language, themes, Shakespeare's life and times, sources and critical opinions, including newly published material. A glossary is also available. Words with text notes attached are highlighted, one click of the mouse and the note pops up!

Each CD-ROM comes with a set of Teacher's Notes, offering up-to-date advice, extension activities, background information and photocopiable worksheets.
