Join this Continuous Professional Development session and equip yourself with new skills and tools to build an anti-racist approach to teaching Shakespeare’s powerful tragedy, Othello, in the classroom.
Aimed at secondary teachers, during the session you will examine a selection of extracts from the play through the lens of anti-racism and look at how we can identify parallel occurrences in contemporary society. Practical and interactive activities will empower you to lead honest and necessary classroom discussions about the play’s themes of race, social justice and identity.
Your experience includes:
- A tour of the Globe Theatre
- A two-and-a-half-hour workshop with an expert practitioner
- A seated ticket to the matinee performance of Othello and programme
- A teacher resource pack to help you embed your learning in the classroom
About the production.
Shakespeare’s confronting look at the destructive impact of racism is laid bare by candlelight in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, directed by Ola Ince (Romeo & Juliet, Globe). It asks: How do we respond to Black success? And what does it mean for accomplished Black men to be torn down by the society that initially lauded them?
