Romeo and Juliet(18 Resources)

"Help students to connect with the tragic story of star-crossed lovers and the feud between their families through resources that address the play’s themes of violence, friendship and family obligation.

Teaching Shakespeare is part of a major pilot project that brings TES together with a group of the UK’s leading arts and cultural organisations – Arts Council England, the British Museum, the British Film Institute and Into Film, the V&A museum and the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC). The pilot aims to bring some of the best cultural resources available directly to teachers, in a form that can be freely used and adapted to need."
