IVE have joined the Royal Shakespeare Company to deliver professional development opportunities for teachers to improve their creative teaching.
The weekend of 15th -17th June saw some of the hottest weather we’ve had so far this year. It also saw 30 teachers from Hull travel to Stratford Upon Avon for the final immersive weekend as part of Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Teacher Development Pilot, which has been delivered in partnership between IVE and the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC).
The premise of our work has been to train teachers in the rehearsal room techniques used by RSC actors as part of their preparation for performance. Back in school, we have supported the teachers to reflect not only on how they might apply these techniques to the teaching of Shakespeare, but also how they might be used to enhance their teaching across the curriculum. By adopting our Learning to Enquire approach to action research, teachers have been able to reflect on and evidence the impact of this development programme on their practice, and on the progress of pupils.
Sessions have been wholly practical, and as you can see from the photos; lots of fun! We are excited to announce that we will be running a second year of the programme in 2017-2018.
