Shakespeare ZA continues to grow as a portal for the sharing of teaching and learning resources.
We invite you to share with us the materials and websites that you have found useful in the classroom or when working on your own!
As part of our current resources, you will find articles, reviews, interviews, slideshows, images, videos, links and lots of other documentation related to Antony and Cleopatra, Othello, Hamlet, Coriolanus and Macbeth, which have been selected as Grade 12 set works for English Home Language learners by the Department of Basic Education (DBE) and the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) in recent years. Various other Shakespeare plays are currently set works in South African schools. Let’s keep building our collection of resources!
