The RSC Shakespeare Toolkit for Teachers - includes CD-ROM $79.99

Royal Shakespeare Company

Published by Methuen

A unique educational resource for Key Stage 3 English and Drama and Shakespeare at Key Stage 2

Developed by one of the world's leading theatre companies, the resource offers teachers a practical drama-based approach to teaching and appreciating three of Shakespeare's most popular plays -

Romeo and Juliet
A Midsummer Night's Dream

This resource brings the plays alive as performance pieces with pupils undertaking drama-based explorations of the text that take them through much of the play, with teachers' notes and accompanying photocopiable worksheets for a lesson by lesson teaching route through each of the three plays in turn

The schemes of work offer teachers a route through each play that has been designed to be flexible and to bolt on to what they already teach

The schemes comprise a series of lessons that can either be followed in their entirety as a stand-alone scheme of work or it can be dipped into by teachers wanting to augment their existing schemes of work

The activities are all mapped to the KS3 Framework for English and KS2 Primary Framework for Literacy objectives, and also offers suggestions for homework activities

"What a welcome the Shakespeare 'toolkit for teachers' will be for students who are sick of poring over the texts, trying to decode the language" ~ The Independent

" ... combines accessible practical ways of playing with Shakespeare's text with the intellectual rigour and active approaches which are part of the RSC's rehearsal process" ~ Youth Theatre News (January 2010)

"The book itself is a lesson in simplicity: clear chapters, with excellent sign-posting and lesson plans should inspire teachers to dip in and out ... developed by experts for teachers ... a must for your classroom" ~ Ink Pellet
