KS3 English - Much Ado in the Classroom

Description

English teachers across west Berkshire are using drama strategies to improve results for the Key Stage 3 Shakespeare paper.

West Berkshire English consultant Frances Gregory believes teachers should teach Shakespeare with plays, not just books, to encourage pupils to write more confidently.

Frances believes Much Ado About Nothing is perfect for drama strategies, with scenes involving conflict between Benedict and Beatrice to which students can relate.

Pip Shaw, head of drama, advises English AST and Shakespeare Schools Festival director Carol Horner to allow pupils to discover the characters for themselves.
