Our introductory teacher guide to using filmed versions of Shakespeare offers activities for students which allow them to place Shakespeare within a cultural context as well as offering a number of more generalised activities. A great starting place to any course featuring one of Shakespeare’s plays, the activities look at the ways in which film itself tells stories as well as how Shakespeare creates meaning and ideas.


To accompany this booklet there is also a 25 minute documentary which looks at a number of issues surrounding studying Shakespeare as well as his place within culture.
