“This is an AMAZING resource! I had so much fun watching as my students connected the script to the tempo of the songs. In three classes, I had almost 100% engagement. The work was easy to adapt in order to fit within my unit.”

“Using this resource in a time-crunched quadmester with all the pandemic restrictions was a lifesaver. Helped me make Romeo and Juliet an engaging text learned safely from their desks with a little adaptation.”
