Overview

Should Shakespeare be taught to pupils of any age and ability? Can practical approaches through the arts make Shakespeare's language more accessible? Does recent legislation threaten the future of the arts within the curriculum? Would an introduction to Shakespeare in the primary school help pupils to cope more easily with his plays in the secondary stage? These and related questions formed a challenge laid down by the RSA and accepted by seventeen primary and secondary schools, supported by the RSC and other organizations. The two volumes of Shakespeare for All tell how those schools met the challenge. This book focuses on the work with young pupils in primary schools ranging in size from small village to large inner-city schools. Written by class teachers, these vivid accounts, brought to life by photographs, paintings and illustrations, will appeal to anyone interested in the realities of the classroom situation. From working on family values through discussions of King Lear to a full-scale production of The Tempest, the teachers adopted a variety of approaches which are recorded in detail, highlighting the difficulties as well as the successes. Shakespeare for All deals with issues of interest to all educationalists and raises questions about the general content of the primary curriculum while underlining the range of teaching strategies which are available to teachers wishing to convey complex ideas to children of all ages and abilities.
