Students will undertake a research project in which they will plan, implement, document and evaluate a unit in the teaching of Shakespeare or other complex literary texts in their school or other educational context. They will be required to adopt either an action research or reflective practice stance, depending on prior experience. They will use the pedagogy and techniques to which they have been introduced in EDUC90496 Shakespeare and Dramatic Pedagogy. Each phase of the work will be supported by readings and weekly on-line discussion forums and tutorials. There will be a shared reporting of their projects at the conclusion of the subject.
There will be two items of assessment. These tasks are interconnected. Students are to identify a specific research stance, selecting Reflective Practitioner Research, Self-Study or Action Research with an emphasis on the link between pedagogical perspectives and content knowledge.
Attendance at all classes (tutorial/seminars/practical classes/lectures/labs/online classes) is obligatory. Failure to attend 80% of classes will normally result in failure in the subject.
