How to Study Shakespeare

A Few Ideas For Getting Started:

Read one or two re-tellings to learn the plot of the play
Read a book about Shakespeare and his times
Act out scenes from the play (using own words)
Draw pictures of the play (if artistic and so inclined!)
Read aloud a few of the more exciting speeches and scene
Watch a video / DVD of the play
Read (and act out) as much of the play as excites your child’s interest
Best of all, see a live performance!
