Shakespeare's Comedies: Shakespeare Workshop

Author: Edited by Ken Watson, Publisher: Phoenix

Each book in this series, written by a range of experienced teachers, contains five of Shakespeare's most popular comedies:

  • Much Ado About Nothing
  • Taming of the Shrew            
  • The Tempest             
  • Twelfth Night
  • As You Like It

There is a wide range of activities for each play providing abundant opportunities for activities which allow students to work towards a thorough understanding of the plays as theatre and literature, towards a range of interpretations of the plays and to explore ways in which a script can be transformed into a stage play.

Most plays include activities dealing with

  • Introduction to the play
  • language
  • staging and performance
  • character
  • plot
  • themes and issues
  • dramatic structure

The comedies selected are more suited to senior secondary students, but can be used with middle secondary.

In addition to the five plays there is a separate section on staging Shakespeare's plays.

All activities are photocopiable.
