Summary

An improved, larger-format edition of the Cambridge School Shakespeare plays, extensively rewritten, expanded and produced in an attractive new design.
The Rex Gibson active approach to classroom Shakespeare enables students to inhabit Shakespeare's imaginative world in accessible and creative ways, sharing Shakespeare's love of language, interest in character and sense of theatre. Substantially revised and extended, classroom activities are thematically organised in distinctive stagecraft, writing, language, characters and themes features. Expanded endnotes include extensive essay-writing guidance for 'King Richard III' and Shakespeare, and extended glossaries are aligned with the play text for easy reference. Includes rich, exciting colour photos of global performances of 'King Richard III'. Further support material available at www.cambridgeschoolshakespeare.com .

-A running synopsis of action is included for every page of script.
-'Stagecraft' boxes give information on stage designs, directors'
approaches and actors views on past performances and offer
opportunities for students to explore and contribute their own ideas on
staging.
-'Write about it' boxes give information about writing about Shakespeare
and suggest activities to help students with their own writing in response
to the play. Students will be helped to translate discussion into high
quality writing; look at 'points of dispute' in the play; structure various
forms of writing, including essays; write responsively and sensitively
about the play; provide evidence from the play to support their
arguments.

'Characters' and 'Themes'.
-Each act is followed by 'Looking back' sections with further notes,
illustrations and activities.
