Shakespeare in the classroom video guide
An introduction to shakespeare
Many tools for teaching Shakespeare in the classroom can be found in the Curriculum collection (on Level 5 of Fisher Library). Shakespeare’s works written explicitly for school curriculums or to engage students with Shakespeare’s plays are included in the series.
Listen to Germaine Greer’s talk “Shakespeare the Radical,” which she gave in 2016 at the Sydney Opera House. Then tune in to Melvyn Bragg’s BBC radio show Shakespeare’s Work, in which he and his guests discuss William Shakespeare’s work. Investigate the Top 35 Shakespeare Podcasts to listen to next.
Go to the State Library of NSW’s website, register for an account, and use your library card code to gain access to databases like the Shakespeare Collection (Gale), which includes a wide collection of authoritative materials for literary, textual, historical, and performance studies. The complete works of Shakespeare, as well as editions and adaptations of his works, other works written during Shakespeare’s period, prompt books, the Gordon Crosse Theatrical Diaries, criticism, reviews, photographs, and reference, are all available as resources. It’s good for HSC English.

Students would be more interested in reading what an author has written if they believe they know him or her as an individual. An understanding of the historical context in which a play was first performed aids in appreciating the work’s artistry and significance.
Students are engulfed in a beautifully reimagined setting of the Elizabethan stage and Shakespeare’s London in “Shakespeare in Love.” The film offers an amusing and open interpretation of how the playwright may have labored over his words and conceits and sought the inspiration for Romeo and Juliet in his own lost love. The playwright Tom Stoppard cleverly combines contemporary allusions, historical characters and incidents, excerpts from the play, Christopher Marlowe borrowings, and visual puns in his script. Students would be able to draw comparisons between Romeo and Juliet’s doomed love and Will and Viola’s impossible love. Elizabethan stagecraft would be well-understood by the students.
The first 40 minutes of the film are sufficient to include the majority of the film’s benefits. The scenes that won the film its R rating are not included in this snippet. The fragment will most likely be PG-13.

This year, as it has been for the past six years in two separate classes, Romeo and Juliet is on my syllabus. I’m not alone—William Shakespeare is one of the most commonly taught writers in English classrooms in the United States, as well as the only author whose name is required in the Common Core State Standards for English/language arts. My Shakespeare assignments, however, have been tinged with regret in recent years. I’m not the only one who is beginning to doubt Shakespeare’s significance in our schools. Yale University students petitioned the school in 2016 to “decolonize” its reading lists, including dropping the Shakespeare criterion. Teachers are starting to challenge Shakespeare’s importance for students as they realize that much of the curriculum in our classrooms privileges white, male, European voices. However, banning Shakespeare from schools is a risky proposition. In the comments section of The Washington Post, a teacher who called for Shakespeare to be banned from the classroom was called a “buffoon,” among other items. Many people consider Shakespeare to be classic literature that anyone can read.
