Developed by one of the world's leading theatre companies, this fantastic resource offers secondary school teachers a practical, drama-based approach to teaching and appreciating three of Shakespeare's most popular plays: Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
All of the work is suitable for students at KS3.
“Pupils who sighed when I said we were going to study Shakespeare found themselves engaged and excited and were disappointed when the module finished.” (Secondary school teacher)
“I love using the ideas, resources, sheets put together and differentiation tools. Easy to adapt and understand how to use in the classroom straight away. Thank you.” (Secondary school teacher)
