Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Participants will learn how to deepen children’s understanding of the social and historical context within which Shakespeare wrote his plays, explore the periods he wrote about and introduce ways to understand the imagined and magical worlds that he invented. This will all be rooted in an exploration of language and will provide you with tools to help give your pupils meaningful connections with the plays.

Evidence underpinning this approach

CLPE is well known for research based publications like The Reader in the Writer and Understanding Spelling. Our research work is based on trialling, testing and refining approaches in classrooms. We link our research to our professional development programmes to ensure that we share our findings and using examples from schools as they try new ideas or embed practices.

How users/participants can evaluate success

We ensure that all our professional development is rigorously evaluated - we have good systems for evaluating our day courses and inservice provision as well as sign posting future development opportunities

Follow-up activities and support

Each of our courses can be part of a series and we advise on the best approaches for each participant.  We can also provide bespoke inservice training and development at the centre or within schools.
