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, Macbeth, and 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 offer suggestions for homework activities as well.
