Join this Continuing Professional Development session and equip yourself with tools and an in-depth understanding of Shakespeare’s vicious comedy, The Taming of the Shrew, 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 5, 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 The Taming of the Shrew 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
