What is the best approach for helping students to understand higher level concepts? How can specific subject knowledge be implemented in lessons?
Ready to Teach: Macbeth brings together the deep subject knowledge, resources and classroom strategies needed to teach Shakespeare’s tragic play, as well as the pedagogical theory behind why these ideas work, helping teachers to deliver a knowledge-rich curriculum with impact.
Each chapter contains lesson-by-lesson essays and commentaries that enhance subject knowledge on key areas of the text alongside fully resourced lessons reflecting current and dynamic best practice.
The book also offers an introduction to the key pedagogical concepts which underpin the lessons and why they are proven to help students develop powerful knowledge and key skills.
Whether you are new to teaching or looking for different ways into the text, Ready to Teach: Macbeth is the perfect companion to the study of ‘the Scottish play’.
