Description

The Thinking Shakespeare series is a collection of learning activities that encourages understanding through a logical progression of thinking skills – from remembering who, what, and when, to knowing how and why. This progression is based on Bloom’s Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. This photocopiable series is designed to help make Shakespeare accessible, simply that. Studying the bard is not always an easy exercise and his plays still excite controversy and disagreement in the most distinguished academic circles.

Very often exercises and activities used in textbooks are daunting for students and, while Shakespeare is a fundamental part of English language curricula throughout the world, his plays are not always easy to read and understand. The ‘Thinking Shakespeare’ series is designed to ease that understanding. Using Bloom’s Taxonomy of Educational Objectives, students are presented with a sequence of exercises and activities which begin with events and characters and progressively become more demanding. Teachers may pull pages and ideas from the series to compliment their own programmes.

The activities may be used for individual, home, group or whole-of-class work. Because the sections are broadly similar throughout the series, similar lines of enquiry may be embarked upon across several of the plays. Generally, students will begin by remembering details and end by developing and expressing their own ideas. The structure of the series also means that there is plenty of work for young readers, right through to more advanced students. Never far away is the intention to foster a sense of enjoyment and appreciation of Shakespeare.
