WHAT IF SHAKESPEARE COULD HELP YOUR PUPILS FIND THEIR VOICE AND DRAMATICALLY IMPROVE THEIR LITERACY SKILLS?
A symposium for headteachers and their curriculum leaders.
22 June 2018, Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon.
The approaches Royal Shakespeare Company have developed with schools over more than a decade empower young people to bring complex language to life. They do this by approaching the text in the same way that our actors do in a professional rehearsal room: making language truly meaningful through investigation and performance.
In-depth research shows that increased confidence with Shakespeare helps young people feel more engaged in their school, their learning and their community. This builds their resilience and confidence to take their place in the world.
Both primary and secondary headteachers across the country are already seeing how these approaches accelerate the development of spoken and written language. They particularly help those pupils who find language difficult.
