Also included are 12 Animated Shakespeare Tales, adapted for younger audiences and great for introducing or reviewing Shakespeare in high school!
• Great Human Achievements series: 9 new programs introduce the world’s greatest achievers and their contributions. These innovators challenged the limits of science, medicine, travel, communication, and even the society in which they lived!
