24-6360 The Merchant of Venice-an approach to Junior Cycle English

This webinar is aimed at mainstream teachers of Junior Cycle English.

We will explore how a selection of learning outcomes* can be brought to life through a range of learning experiences as students engage with William Shakespeare's play, The Merchant of Venice.

The webinar will illustrate how learning experiences can deepen and consolidate learning outcomes through key moments in The Merchant of Venice, whilst also making links and connections from this learning to other text forms.

We will share how extended writing opportunities emerge allowing students to develop the Collection of Student's Texts, CBA 2.

Teachers will gain insight into how their students may apply this learning to questions in the final state examination.

 *Learning Outcomes in Focus: OL8, OL12, R6, R8, R9, W3, W4, W7, W8
