Teacher Training Day 2019

Join us for a free day of professional development where we share activities developed and tested during the CultureShake project

Join us on 5 April 2019 for a very special session of teacher training, primarily aimed at secondary school teachers of English who work with linguistically heterogeneous classrooms in the UK and around the world.

In this free training session, held at the Shakespeare Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon, we'll be sharing our findings and disseminating the teaching activities developed and tested in our CultureShake project. CultureShake focuses on including multilingualism in the language learner classroom, and we've been working with secondary school students from different language backgrounds throughout the project. 

The programme will also include a display of treasures from our collections and a visit to the exhibition Famous Beyond Words and to Shakespeare’s Birthplace.
