This resource was specifically created for our Reel to Real education project with the learning department of the V&A Museum. The activities outlined in the resource are broadly suitable for ages 11-18 English, drama and related subjects, and are particularly helpful in supporting study of the play for GCSE English Literature. This resource helps students to explore character, meaning and interpretation through a range of activities designed to deepen students' understanding of the different ways a text can be interpreted which, in turn, challenges them to develop higher-order thinking skills such as analysis, evaluation and creation. 

It comprises of a set of comprehensive teachers' notes with worksheets for use in the classroom and the accompanying Reel to Real: Much Ado About Nothing PowerPoint presentation which includes clips from the 1968 Zeffirelli and 1996 Baz Luhrmann film adaptations and short extracts from the 2013 National Theatre production, courtesy of the V&A.

What our educators say

"As an alternative provision for learners who are not in mainstream school we use your resources in a slightly different way as they generally find it hard to watch a full length film. They are, however fantastic. "
