Shakespeare Reloaded encourages middle secondary students to imaginatively engage with Shakespeare’s plays and poetry as they actively explore key ideas and themes and how these are expressed through language. This active approach to studying Shakespeare will complement and enhance the study of individual texts and provide an invaluable resource for every English student.

* Combines detailed explorations of key scenes with broad analysis of the language features and text structures to give students an understanding of the complete plays and Shakespeare's wider body of work.
* Introduces students to the social, cultural and political conditions in which Shakespeare worked, bringing theatre and Elizabethan England to life.
* Focuses on how Shakespeare’s texts have been interpreted throughout history and for contemporary audiences.
* Explores the continuing value and relevance of Shakespeare’s work for Australian students today.
* Encourages students to extend what they have learned through their own writing and research and through further viewing and reading.
