Main description

Turn your iPod into A Midsummer Night's Dream 101 class for on-the-go learning

In this unique audio series, 21st century technology brings alive a 16th century writer and his work so students can fully understand the genius of William Shakespeare. McGraw-Hill's PodClass: A Midsummer Night's Dream Study Guide helps you reinforce what you have learned in class or even fill in the bits you may have missed.

This program includes more than 50 mini lectures on main topic points, engaging scene summaries, and “drama bytes”--key quotes and dialogues from the play, as well as insider guidance on approaching tests, papers, and essays. This is not an abridged recording of the play; rather this dynamic audio program reveals what it means, which characters are important, what themes Shakespeare was exploring-all the issues that you need to know to ace your test.
