i need ideas for making shakepeare's play 'the tempest' more relevant to children. how can i do this?
any ideas on changing the concept for a child audience?
I really have no idea how you'd do that, but one thing you MUST do is to make absolutely sure you understand that play from beginning to end. If there's any question about any part of it, be sure to make good use of this website:
Read through starting with Act I Scene 1, and notice that when you read through the play in this website, the original Shakespearean language is in the column on the left and modern-day English is on the right.
Only when you understand it completely can you make it into a different format.
Thank goodness you weren't assigned the same task with Dante's Divine Comedy.
