Interactive learning resources
This autumn RSC Education launched the first in a series of exclusive RSC Interactive Learning Resources to support the Shakespeare plays performed on our stages and those profiled in our Schools' Broadcast series.
These online resources have been optimised for use on all interactive whiteboards and contain a fantastic range of RSC production images, RSC videos and practical activities that will provide you and your students with different ways to explore Shakespeare's texts. Developed by RSC educationalists and freely available to all teachers in the UK, we will produce interactive learning resources for each of the first folio plays over the next six years, beginning with Henry IV Parts I & II and The Two Gentlemen of Verona.
Aimed at Key Stages 3 and 4, and ideal for supporting the new Key Stage 3 curriculum, these unique classroom tools introduce texts through interactive pages, RSC performance footage and key scenes, all of which can be accessed from any computer via our resource bank or directly at interactive-learning.rsc.org.uk.
You can also access our flipchart, built around the RSC's 2011 Young Person's Shakespeare production of The Taming of the Shrew directed by Tim Crouch and featuring Madeline Appiah as Katharina and Nikesh Patel as Petruchio:

More educational resources are available online in our Resource bank where we've compiled learning materials around key Shakespeare plays, including: production videos and images, activities, synopses and much more.
Find out more about Shakespeare's life, plays and what goes on behind the scenes in Explore. Here you'll find plenty of interviews with directors, designers and actors from our past productions of both Shakepeare's plays and plays by other writers.
