A graphic reading 'CPD teaching anti-racist Shakespeare'

Continuing Professional Development: Teaching Anti-Racist Shakespeare – Othello and The Merchant of Venice

This event has now passed.

Learn new skills to build an anti-racist approach to teaching Shakespeare in the classroom.

This three hour, online CPD offers a practical toolkit for Secondary English and Drama teachers. Drawing on Othello and The Merchant of Venice, it will be led by an experienced Globe Education Practitioner via Zoom.

The plays will be examined through the lens of anti-racism and the outsider and look at how we can identify parallel occurrences in contemporary society. The workshop will be delivered by an experienced Globe Education Practitioner.

Shakespeare’s Globe is committed to understanding historic bias and racism within our organisation and bringing about lasting change. As part of this conversation our programme includes regular CPDs for teachers and the recent launch of a new series of webinars.

This event is generously sponsored by Cambridge University Press.
