Media resources

Enrich your students’ learning experience of Shakespeare by incorporating media resources into your lessons and activities.


The media resources produced by the RSC and Shakespeare Lives offer visual representation and alternative interpretations of Shakespeare’s work on the stage and film.


You can use the resources alongside the Schools' Pack to further emphasise many of the key themes Shakespeare explores throughout his works.
