Hi all, I hope everyone reading is staying safe. I am a Computer Science teacher by training, however, due to staff turn at a previous school I taught GCSE English language and frankly enjoyed it. I started to teach literature which I enjoyed even more. Before the lock down I was a cover supervisor for a few schools and would only be called for English lessons through my arrangement with the cover agency. My predicament is that different schools teach different texts - even different exam boards! Even though I've taught so much English I still feel I don't have a grasp on the most effective way to teach the core principles. That might sounds a little abstract so here's what i mean. This is in the context of teaching Shakespeare, 19th-century and Modern texts Teaching a particular text is straight forward- we go through the plot and characters whilst forming analyses on themes context, structure and language, however, teaching two texts or three text at a time is near impossible. Now, I'm not intending to develop a scheme of work that teaches multiple texts for 2 years. My aim is to develop a short scheme of work that prepares students for exams but can be taught to students with little or no knowledge of a text. And as a by product this would also be useful for those students who come Spring term 1 have no idea who Benvolio is never mind how he is good intentioned! So just to clarify I am asking what I would need to consider when developing this scheme of work. Would this even be fruitful? Are there existing schemes of work that meet my requirements. Apologies for the long post.
