Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Shakespeare in Bits: A Midsummer Night’s Dream lets kids see animated characters “perform” the play aloud on one side of the screen while the text is highlighted on the other. It gives kids studying Shakespeare the option to process the words by hearing them as well as reading, and there are lots of features that enhance the learning experience. Although it’s presented tastefully, a bit of inappropriate content exists — lots of sexual innuendos spice up the characters’ antics. This app can help tweens and teens get the most out of Shakespeare’s silliest, most magical of plays with a variety of handy features. 

Shakespeare in Bits: A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a Education app that is designed for those 14.  The app has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 and a learning rating of 4 out of 5.

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Shakespeare’s writing may not be engaging to some kids, but these animated videos and other special features can really help them get into the challenging but worthwhile text. 

The Support Level for Shakespeare in Bits: A Midsummer Night’s Dream is about a 4 out of 5.

Subtitles, highlighted text, animation, scene summaries, and other support features make the text accessible to reluctant and low-level readers. However, the app lacks the resources to extend learning.
