Shakespeare's Tragedies: Shakespeare Workshop
This volume, written by a range of experienced teachers, contains five of the most popular of Shakespeare's tragedies.
- King Lear
- Anthony and Cleopatra
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
- staging and performance
- dramatic structure
In addition to the activities for each of the plays there is a separate section on staging Shakespeare's plays.
The plays selected in Tragedies are more suited to senior secondary students, but can be used with middle secondary.
