Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Discover ways to engage and challenge your students with the drama and storytelling in Shakespeare’s plays. This special course will provide teachers with a variety of active approaches to Shakespeare.

  • Inspire and develop the teaching of Shakespeare plays to enhance classroom practice
  • Learn skills to teach Shakespeare’s plays through ways of telling the story, exploring characters and what motivates them, language and verse and the themes of the plays
  • Engage and enthuse pupils to explore the plays by removing the fear of accessing stories and language written 400 years ago
Evidence underpinning this approach

All our courses are delivered by experts in their field and the various ideas, theories, techniques and strategies are founded in educational research.

How users/participants can evaluate success

Teachers can match up their progress in the classroom against their memo to me (what they aim to action from this course at their school). Another copy of this will be sent to all teachers 7-8 weeks after the course with form inviting them to assess/analyse implementation and learning so far and plans how to take things forward. This is for personal as well as professional development.

Follow-up activities and support

Group feedback during the course is circulated to participants and they are made aware of new research or developments in that particular field of education (that could be taken further, i.e. professional enquiry and/or university accreditation).


Led by practitioners from Shakespeare's Globe.
