RSC Shakespeare Toolkit for Primary Teachers PB
The RSC Shakespeare Toolkit for Primary Teachers
Royal Shakespeare Company (Author)
Developed by one of the world's leading theatre companies, this fantastic resource has been specially adapted to offer primary 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 KS2.
The toolkit brings the plays alive as performance pieces, with pupils undertaking drama-based explorations of the text that take them through much of the play.
Teachers' notes and accompanying photocopiable worksheets offer 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 which can be dipped into by teachers wanting to augment their existing schemes of work.
'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.'
'...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
`It really does put plenty of `tools' in your `kit' and gives you lots (and lots) of routes right into the play you are working on... Everything, including dozens of worksheets, can be legally photocopied for distribution to the class. Probably more convenient for most teachers is the CD-ROM which provides all the teacher notes, resource sheets and worksheets as printable PDFs along with extra image and text resources for some lessons.'
'This toolkit is essential to bring the Bard to life'
