The Play's the Thing! Improving Grades with Dramatic Approaches to Shakespeare

Drama
In September 2006, the RSC launched a major campaign to bring about change so that all young people have a positive experience of Shakespeare at school. Shakespeare remains a mandatory part of the National Curriculum and the DfES agreed that a debate, led by the RSC, should continue to investigate innovative and successful ways to teach Shakespeare. There is a major national campaign looking at the way Shakespeare is taught, studied and assessed in our schools.

Using Drama Activities to Teach Citizenship

Drama
Many of the topics included in the KS4 citizenship curriculum are the stuff of which drama is made! Subjects such as law & order, politics & power and the role of the media provide excellent opportunities for developing understanding through the creation of dramatic work. Drama activities also help to build confidence, which will enable learners to participate effectively in discussions as well as developing their skills of enquiry and communication.
