Teaching in and through the arts development pilot. 23 May 2016

This programme uses rehearsal room approaches and theatre making to teach Shakespeare in the primary school, and examines how this process can develop teachers' skill, confidence and ambition, and in turn impact on children's language and literacy. We will use reflective practice and action research to encourage teachers to consider how to apply their new-found approaches across their school's curriculum. The research will focus on identifying the approaches and processes that make teachers' professional development in these areas most effective, and how an action research informed approach can effectively support this.
