Shakespeare's Histories: Shakespeare Workshop
This volume offers workshop approaches for studying some of the more popular of Shakespeare’s histories.
Henry IV Part 1
The approaches offered will help students gain critical insights into:
- Shakespeare’s language
- theatrical forms and devices
The student-centred interactive strategies presented will also encourage students to bring a play alive by exploring form and content which takes the play off the page and, in the imagination of the students, onto the stage.
This approach not only gives students a greater understanding and appreciation of the plays as theatre but also helps them approach more traditional literary criticism with greater confidence.
