Hi all I'm just doing some research for my PGCE interview! I'm just wondering what everyone's opinions are on picking different Shakespeare plays for different year groups and abilities. For example, are there plays that are more accessible? Would you perhaps pick a shorter play for lower ability and lower age group? I noticed that Macbeth was the year 9 choice at my school and Merchant of Venice and Romeo and Juliet were the choices in year 10, but I couldn't have imagined ever studying King Lear or Hamlet at this stage. Are English teachers told which plays they have to teach or do they get to pick and why do you pick the ones you do if you have a choice? Are there some plays that you would want to avoid depending on the age/ability of the class? Opinions will be very appreciated!
