KS3 English - Richard III: RSC Approaches

mediumblue

Summary

A group of English teachers discover how to teach Richard III as a performance text in a workshop with the Royal Shakespeare Company Learning department.

The specially commissioned workshop encourages an emotional connection with the sinister world of the play, using the themes of mistrust and abuse of power.

RSC practitioner Rachel Gartside takes the teachers through a collective role play, giving them an anchor into one of the key scenes. The teachers then take turns to read short segments in order to deal with the nervousness of reading in public.
