This resource is designed to enhance students' understanding of tragedy in Shakespeare’s works, through analysis of cinematic adaptations of his often bloody and vengeful tragedies. Films include the silent Julius Caesar, Caesar Must Die, Throne of Blood and Macbeth. Key themes, ideas and genre conventions will be explored through multiple film adaptations, to further understand aspects of plot, characterisation, events and settings. This engaging series of lessons includes a range of activities aimed at students aged 14—16 which are linked to the curriculums for English literature and film studies in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Across the activities, learners also will be encouraged to improve their communication and problem-solving capabilities.
Shakespeare, Tragedy and Silent Cinema was written by a Teach First teacher, for the BFI’s Shakespeare on Film season -http://www.bfi.org.uk/shakespeare-on-film.
