  • Teaching Shakespeare has been a major contribution to the knowledge and expertise of all teachers of Shakespeare from primary upwards for two decades. This full-colour second edition is in a larger format, updated to reflect modern classroom practice. It includes new contributions by leading practitioners from Shakespeare’s Globe, the Shakespeare Schools Festival, the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and the Cambridge School Shakespeare editorial team. Teaching Shakespeare makes explicit the ‘Active Shakespeare’ principles which underpin Cambridge School Shakespeare and includes activities and advice to help teachers develop their existing good practice, making the learning of Shakespeare valuable and enjoyable for all involved.

School Shakespeare books:

School Shakespeare offers an active approach to classroom Shakespeare, enabling students to inhabit Shakespeare’s imaginative world in accessible and creative ways. This dramatic experience is at the heart of the series with students encouraged to share Shakespeare’s love of language, interest in character and sense of theatre. With complete play texts on right-hand pages, classroom activities on facing pages include:  running synopses of the action, explanations of unfamiliar words, and a wide range of classroom-tested activities to help turn script into drama. Activities are thematically organised in clearly visible features. Extended page-by-page glossaries are aligned with the play text for ease of reference. ‘Looking back’ sections follow each act with further notes, illustrations and activities. ‘Stagecraft’ and ‘Write about it’ features are significantly revised and expanded; endnotes include new sections on writing about Shakespeare and each play. Includes rich and exciting colour photos of performances from around the world.
