Teaching Shakespeare

Jez has just been on a course called ‘Teaching Shakespeare’. He spent a very enjoyable morning role playing Shakespeare with other English teachers. Amongst other things he was a king, a warrior and a witch. (Just like a normal day at work.) He learnt lots of different hands-on ways to make Shakespeare funny, interesting and relevant. So far Jez has used some of the techniques with year 10 girls – it’s like Eastenders!! – and the ladies in the office.

With a bit of adaptation it could be used with poems and novels.
