Animated Shakespeare

Educational Videos and Teaching Resources

We think you’ll find these downloadable teaching resources – created as they were by professional theatre actors – very valuable supports to your classroom explorations of Shakespeare. 
• Introducing Shakespeare 
• Shakespeare's Time 
• Shakespeare's Macbeth 
Each educational video is built to deepen students’ understanding of various aspects of Shakespeare’s work or a particular play, performed by Rick Miller. Also please see activities section for study guides: video transcripts, topic recaps and several in-class activities (each with Teacher and Class Handouts). 

No matter which play you are studying, these activities can supplement your regular classroom work to enliven the text that has become so influential, not only in theatre but in the common speech of Western society. Enjoy!
