Continuing Professional Development: Teaching Shakespeare and Sexuality

Price: £45.00 Book Now

Build your confidence and skills in facilitating an exploration of Shakespeare’s work through LGBTQIA+ inclusive lenses in the classroom in this practical Continuing Professional Development workshop designed for Secondary English and Drama teachers. This is an in-person event hosted on-site at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Working with an experienced Education Practitioner, you’ll use academic and practical tools to analyse where Shakespeare’s works illuminate the queer culture of his own time, as well as revealing how ‘queering’ the performance of Shakespeare’s plays can unlock further meaning.

Using practical techniques direct from our rehearsal rooms and references to current research relating to the plays in their original and contemporary contexts, you will uncover the queer potential in Shakespeare and the possibilities and provocative discussions that can arise from looking at his plays through an other-than-heteronormative lens.

Your experience includes:

  • A two-and-a-half-hour workshop with an expert practitioner
  • A tour of the Globe Theatre
  • A teacher resource pack to help you embed your learning in the classroom



This event takes place on-site at the Globe.
