Live Question and Answer Session

Key Stages 3 and 4

Key Stage 3 and 4 in a circle

Suitable for Key Stages 3 and 4

Speech bubbles with Q and A within a circle

Includes a live interaction

Have your pupils got lots of questions about their play? Why not put them to two Shakespeare experts and get some insightful responses from two very different perspectives.

You’ll be able to pose questions to an actor and a Shakespeare scholar, and hear their (often radically contradictory) takes on your play! The session takes place on a platform of your choice, and lasts 45 minutes.

The live Q&A session is an opportunity to:

  • refine thoughts and ideas raised in the Toolbox video;
  • encourage pupils to think critically about their text;
  • broaden interpretation by hearing from a scholar and an actor;
  • affirm and build on independent ideas.
