Join this Continuing Professional Development session and equip yourself with tools and an in-depth understanding of Shakespeare’s timeless comedy of wit and wooing, Much Ado About Nothing, to enhance your teaching in the classroom. This is an online event hosted on Zoom and available to join from wherever you are in the world.
Aimed at secondary teachers, with a particular focus on Key Stage 4, the session will demonstrate how to use practical, rehearsal room techniques to enliven and deepen your students’ understanding of the play’s characters, context, themes and imagery, and develop their critical thinking skills.
This CPD highlights themes and concepts pertinent to our Summer 2024 production of Much Ado About Nothing but you are welcome to join the session even if you are unable to attend the performance.
Your experience includes:
- A two-and-a-half-hour workshop with an expert practitioner
- A teacher resource pack to help you embed your learning in the classroom
About the production
After years of war, young lovers Claudio and Hero, and sparring singletons Beatrice and Benedick, are about to find out that all is not as it seems in their idyllic, Italian paradise… Globe Associate Artistic Director Sean Holmes (The Tempest, ★★★★ ‘super-fun’ Time Out) directs this Elizabethan-dress production.
