Measure for Measure (Cambridge School Shakespeare) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A new look at Shakespeare's play in accordance with the work of the Shakespeare and Schools Project, the National Curriculum for English, developments at GCSE and A-level, and the probable development of English and Drama throughout the 1990s. Cambridge School Shakespeare considers the play as theatre and the text as script, enabling pupils to inhabit the imaginative world of the play in an accessible, meaningful and creative way. Cambridge School Shakespeare approaches the plays in a new way, encouraging students to participate actively in examining them, to work in groups as well as individually, to treat each play as a script to be re-created, and to explore the theatrical/dramatic qualities of the text. The editorial comments cater for pupils of all ages and abilities, providing clear, helpful guidelines for school study. The format of the plays is also designed to help all teachers, whether experienced or inexperienced.

Synopsis:

The "Cambridge School Shakespeare" offers a new approach to Shakespeare in the classroom, with each play treated not as a text but as a script. The series is designed to help both experienced and inexperienced teachers, and to enable students to make their own discoveries about the plays.
