RSC Hamlet 

The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) is offering a large number of free Shakespeare-related resources to students currently learning at home, and to teachers looking to create lesson plans to deliver online.

Online content includes RSC Activity Toolkits, focussing on six of Shakespeare’s most studied plays. The toolkits have been designed specifically for home learning, with short 15-minute tasks that can be completed by students at home, or set as part of a remote lesson. With supporting videos from RSC actors, the toolkits will take students deeper into the world of each play. Actors, including Niamh Cusack, Paapa Essiedu and David Tennant have also created video responses to questions sent in from students as part of Homework Help.

Shakespeare Learning Zone contains lots of interactive games and quizzes for students to enjoy as well as video content featuring RSC actors performing scenes and speeches, and talking about their approach to playing different characters.

All resources are accessible via the Education section of the RSC website.
