Cambridge School Shakespeare offers an active approach to classroom Shakespeare, enabling students to inhabit Shakespeare's imaginative world in accessible and creative ways. This dramatic experience is at the heart of the series with students encouraged to share Shakespeare's love of language, interest in character and sense of theatre. With complete play texts on right-hand pages, classroom activities on facing pages include: running synopses of the action, explanations of unfamiliar words, and a wide range of classroom-tested activities to help turn script into drama. Activities are thematically organised in clearly visible features. Extended page-by-page glossaries are aligned with the play text for ease of reference. 'Looking back' sections follow each act with further notes, illustrations and activities. 'Stagecraft' and Write about it' features are significantly revised and expanded, endnotes include new sections on Writing about Shakespeare and each play. Includes rich and exciting colour photos of performances from around the world.
