This year, we've been shouting about how we work with schools in the UK in the form of online Case Studies. This month, we've launched a new section on our website in a mission to continue this dialogue.  

Our 'Classroom Case Studies' launched online this month. These personal accounts share first-hand stories from teachers and schools up and down the country who have worked with us. From Blackpool to Barking, teachers from our Associate Schools talk about how using RSC rehearsal room practices has influenced their approaches towards teaching Shakespeare.

We now want to continue communicating your experiences in our new 'News and Blogs' section of our website.

Recently, Ellen shared her story about being part of our National Schools' Festival, and Eve explained why performing in the Stratford Schools's Festival was a rewarding rollercoaster ride. We loved hearing from these two pupils and we're now on the look out for more stories.

If you're a student or teacher, we'd love to hear your stories of learning, theatre, Shakespeare and the RSC. Your blogs can be as short or long as you like, and we can assist with writing and editing.

IDEAS

  • Write about being part of an RSC workshop or event - how was the day and what did you learn?
  • Seen a show broadcast live into your classroom? What was it like watching the show on-screen? Did you have any favourite moments?
  • Are you a teacher that's worked with us? Has being part of our learning community developed your teaching approaches and how? How are you using RSC techniques in your classroom?
  • If you came to Stratford-upon-Avon or to one of our tour locations to see a show, what did you think of it? How was your first experience of the RSC?
  • Are you a student first being introduced to Shakespeare? How does his work make you feel? Write a blog about your emotions and reactions to his plays.
  • Have you ever performed Shakespeare? Is it different to reading the text? See if you can put this experience into words.
  • Have we changed your opinions of Shakespeare and theatre? How has Shakespeare impacted other areas of your life?
