EDUCATION NEWS BRINGING SHAKESPEARE TO LIFE IN THE CLASSROOM JUNE 2014 TRANSFORMING EXPERIENCES OF SHAKESPEARE RSC Education is committed to building long-term relationships with schools, teachers and young people and particularly those who might not ordinarily experience our work. On our map you can see the breadth of connections we make across the country and inside this edition you will find stories from our partner schools and theatres, all of whom are finding new ways to engage young people in Shakespeare’s work. You will also find information about all of our Education work including Young Shakespeare Nation (YSN), an invitation for you and your students to join our journey through the 36 First Folio plays over the next six years. YSN IN ACTION ■ In 2013 RSC education reached 450,000 students across the UK and in 14 countries world-wide. ■ From 2006 – 2014 RSC Education’s Learning and Performance Network (LPN) has gone from strength to strength and we have now established relationships in over 400 schools and 10 regional theatres across England. ■ In 2013 the RSC became the first theatre company to broadcast our productions directly into classrooms and entirely for free. Over 30,000 young people joined us in watching Richard II.
