    My department have been looking at Unit 3 on the new spec- Poetry and Drama. The tasks are 'Male/female relationships' and 'Conflict'. I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on this or any thoughts on which Shakespeare play (scene) and poems they are going to look at. Any ideas welcome...
    Thanks in advance :)
  2. M/F relationships: most probably going to use Taming of the Shrew. Haven't looked at the poems the Board have linked to the task yet.

    Yeah, Taming of the Shrew could be a good shout, although it is difficult to think about a particular scene. I must admit that it is a much harder task than first anticipated....
  4. My school is looking at the roles of M/F between MacBeth and Lady MacBeth this can be differentiated by the number of scenes you look at.

    Good morning,
    This is just one of many teaching packs that we are developing for the new GCSE specifications.
    The pack we develop for this unit will contain two main tasks - one for foudation and one for higher - together, where applicable, with supporting material and worksheets, etc. Alternative tasks will also be suggested.
    The pack will be available free of charge and you will be able to download it as a word or pdf document.
    We'll keep you posted.
