Visit our What's On to see our current and upcoming events.

This three hour, online teacher training session will help you to discover ways to engage and challenge your pupils with the drama and storytelling in Shakespeare’s plays.

Led by an experienced Globe Education Practitioner, participants will investigate ways to encourage pupils to enjoy the plays by removing the fear of accessing stories and language written 400 years ago.

Examine ways to tell the story, how to explore characters and motivation, and what approaches can help with promoting enjoyment of Shakespeare’s language and verse – all from the comfort of your own home.
