Summary

An improved, larger-format edition of the Cambridge School Shakespeare plays, extensively rewritten, expanded and produced in an attractive new design.

An active approach to classroom Shakespeare enables students to inhabit Shakespeare's imaginative world in accessible and creative ways. Students are encouraged to share Shakespeare's love of language, interest in character and sense of theatre. Substantially revised and extended in full colour, classroom activities are thematically organised in distinctive 'Stagecraft', 'Write about it', 'Language in the play', 'Characters' and 'Themes' features. Extended glossaries are aligned with the play text for easy reference. Expanded endnotes include extensive essay-writing guidance for 'The Tempest' and Shakespeare. Includes rich, exciting colour photos of performances of 'The Tempest' from around the world.

-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.
-Further boxed features focus on exploration of 'Language in the play',
'Characters' and 'Themes'.
-Extended glossaries aligned with the play script for ease of reference
provide clear explanation of key terms.
-Each act is followed by 'Looking back' sections with further notes,
illustrations and activities.
-Comprehensive and extended endnotes with illustrations and activities
are linked to the boxed features and give further information and for
exploration of stagecraft, language, characters and themes.
-New 'Writing about' sections focus on writing about Shakespeare in
general and on the play in particular.
-A rich selection of exciting colour photos with information on
performances appear throughout.
