Abstract

English language teachers and students often baulk at the suggestion of studying the works of Shakespeare in the classroom let alone dramatising them. In this practical workshop, I will briefly explain why Shakespeare is relevant to English language users today in terms of his contributions to modern English usage and the universal themes of his plays. We will then try out a number of classroom activities that focus on voice work and general techniques for dramatising text.
