    I'm feeling really nervous about starting to teach Romeo and Juliet to Year 11,average ability set. Always feel that I struggle to teach shakespeare well and would loveto see some schemes of work that people have been able to use to get good results from their students.

    If you don't have it already, get a copy of the Cambridge School Shakespeare, even if only for yourself to use - every other page is a list of suggested activities, many of them really engaging for all abilities.
     
  3. Hi
    At Film Education we have a DVD resource called Filming Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet that uses a range of clips from different productions of the film to explore various interpretations of the text. You can find out more about this resource by following this link:

    We also have a free downloadable study guide based on the Baz Lurhmann production of the play that you can access via this page:

    Hope this is useful

  4. I thoroughly recommend Film Ed stuff. Cambridge School Shakespeare texts are cheap and also excellent. Straightforward, photocopiable stuff (R and J Teachers' Resource pack by Classical Comics) available via the NATE shop www.nate.org.uk
