Not only is D. Lipowitz and J. Conley's Advanced Placement Classroom: Macbeth useful for the Seconday English teacher but also offers many strategies applicable in classrooms K-12 regardless of the subject matter. For example, Chapter 8 describes many teaching strategies and activities useful for differentiating instruction to accommodate learner strengths and weaknesses, such as a learning goals contract and a note-taking exercise. We will use this book in preparing our student teachers to be flexible in meeting the needs of diverse learners who will be enriched if they strive to know the Bard. In Chapters 4 and 5, the authors outline the historic background of the play, a technique essential to an interdisciplinary approach in which history and literature are taught in the same classroom by one or two team teachers. Again, this book lays the groundwork for such innovations in teaching and will serve our emerging teachers well. It is obvious from the book that the authors are seasoned, master teachers who care not only about the content with which they are so familiar but also the students in their classrooms who will benefit by knowing and understanding what Abraham lincoln thought was the very best play of all because Shakespeare is for everyone.
