Studying Hamlet for A Level Literature

Why should you attend?

A cross-specification course to reinvigorate both your own reading of Hamlet and your teaching strategies. The course will provide a wide range of practical approaches to analysing the text, balancing close reading with an overview of the whole, as well as resources for looking at the play in its literary and generic context.

What will the course cover?

  • Creative and critical approaches to reading and analysing the text.
  • Archetypes and drama – new approaches to dramatic characterisation.
  • Effective ways of engaging with criticism to extend responses.
  • A case study on elements of tragedy.

NB. This is a repeat course.


As ever, an outstanding and inspirational experience – the place for CPD for English teachers.
