Teaching Shakespeare

Discussion in 'Primary' started by alea, Mar 17, 2011.

  1. Primary is upto KS2, you might want to post in secondary.
    When I teach Shakespeare to year 5 they always love it though!

    I think a lot depends on the enthusiam of the teacher & how it's taught.I've looked at the basic storylines of Shakespeare & less at the actual language. There are some really good street language versions available or films to introduce Students to how fantastic Shakespeare was at depicting ordinary people & their problems/ordinary life.
    I definitely think Shakespeare needs to be performed & seen performed until students are quite mature enough to handle the Shakespearian language & if they see a production they need to see it done well.

    I have taught Shakespeare plays to all ages from year 2 to year 6. All can access the general story line and there are a great many very good children's versions to use.
