English with Confidence: Shakespeare's Women
L01214

A short course to introduce learners to the Shakespeare?s most remarkable female characters from a selection of plays. Learners may not have seen the point in studying Shakespeare at school, or been put off by the Elizabethan language, but now would like to know why his plays and poems are valued, 400 years later, by women as well as men. This course will explore women?s position in the historical context of Elizabethan theatre, as well as dip into a selection of plays, themes and characters. Learners will gain confidence in expressing themselves in English through discussion, writing and even performance.

Course Content

Building confidence in reading and writing and organising learning.
English skills including reading, making notes, describing, explaining and analysing language techniques, identifying ideas in a text and linking to context.
Understanding ways to approach a play and its characters.
