To teach (Shakespeare) or not to teach

English PGCE students

TRAINEES of the secondary English PGCE and Schools Direct routes, along with colleagues from the English department in Mill Chase Academy, attended a training day on Teaching Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre in London last month.

The day, on Friday 6 February, comprised a tour of the theatre with an opportunity to stand on the great stage and was followed by several hours of a workshop exploring different approaches to teaching Shakespeare in the secondary classroom.

Teachers left the session motivated and inspired with a range of ideas and approaches to trial as they embark on the next stage of their training.
