Whether students are studying in classrooms or remotely, our digital ‘Catch-Up with Shakespeare’ conferences offer a great opportunity to help students catch-up on their set-texts and also look forward to the next steps in their studies.

Classes (or individual students) get access to:

  • 90 minutes of pre-recorded bite-size video content on their set-text in advance of the opportunity to share thoughts and have their questions answered LIVE by Shakespeare experts featured in the pre-recorded material.*
  • transcripts of the 3 x 15 minute extract analysis videos to keep as revision notes after the event
  • a range of expert and peer voices helping students to develop their own thinking.

Pre-recorded materials will be released one week in advance of the LIVE session to allow students to digest and respond to the material in their own time.

The LIVE Q&A panel discussion will be accessible via YouTube. In the interests of safeguarding students will not be seen or heard, but will be able to pose questions and read and follow other students' responses via the 'Chat' function.

Questions can be submitted in advance or during the LIVE session.

*The pre-recorded material includes a 45 minute video packed full of useful information and analysis covering historical, social, cultural and literary contexts, theatre interpretative choices, and critical reception, and 3 x 15 minute videos featuring analysis of individual extracts drawing on a variety of different approaches.

These sessions are suitable for all exam boards: AQA, Edexcel, OCR, Pre-U, WJEC, IB.

They all found the experience really useful and they liked the 'chat' box facility.
