Would you like your pupils to get specialist insight into their play from a scholar and an actor, giving your pupils handy tools and tips for exploring Shakespeare’s text?

The Toolbox video offers a useful model through which to explore themes, context, language and interpretive possibilities, giving your pupils a nifty stock of hints and tricks to connect up these different aspects, in order to help them to produce clear and well-informed responses to their set play.

The Toolbox video encourages pupils to:

  • think about and engage critically with their text;
  • understand the links between text and context;
  • feel confident in analysing Shakespeare’s language;
  • consider interpretive potential and develop personal responses.
