English students often find it difficult to appreciate key texts written in a different time and in a language they don’t understand. Some will never grasp the work of Shakespeare, Dickens, Austen and so on, because of these challenges. Shireland used resources from the National Theatre to help Key Stage 5 students understand and engage with texts.
