Developed by Bell Shakespeare and Deeper Richer, and designed for primary students, Starting Shakespeare is a fresh, accessible and rich learning resource for you and your students.

Clearly aligned to the Australian Curriculum and featuring Bell Shakespeare artists, the app explores the world and work of William Shakespeare using two of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth.

---“Starting Shakespeare takes the fear out of Shakespeare. This app brings the language and plays to life in a colourful and accessible way. Students will love experimenting with their own spells and getting to know some of the greatest stories and characters ever created, in a fun and interactive way.” - GEMMA PORTER, BILLANOOK COLLEGE ---

The rich content includes:
— Playful videos
— Engaging retellings
— Character profiles
— Historical information
— Active learning journeys
— Comprehensive free teacher handbook
