Advanced Module A: Textual Conversations - The Tempest and Hag-Seed - Barbara Stanners

This course was relevant in terms of focusing on the interconnections between the two texts with a focus on contextual influences and concerns reflected in the respective texts. The resources were engaging for classroom use.

The quality was very good and highly relevant.

This is merely a program with some quality resources, rather than a pedagogical approach to teaching the Module. Even with the resources, there is nothing new and Hagseed has been left alone. Atwood’s context has not been explored in a deep way which is relevant to character, setting, etc.

The quality of the course allowed for detailed understanding of the texts which informed my understanding of how to assess, contextualise and deliver the Tempest and Hagseed. The course detailed The Tempest and it’s context. Strong resources that linked to the Tempest.

The course was relevant and provided many resources that would enhance student understanding of the module. The course was a fantastic way to gain an understanding of what is expected of our students. The resources were user friendly and provided many opportunities for students to engage in their learning and critically analyse both texts. - -

Good resources, will use in classroom for revision. A few aspects I didn’t teach but reiterated what I did. A thorough examination of the Advanced course with helpful resources and an insight to the deep knowledge required by students. - Danielle Vandenberg -

There were some interesting components and some valuable information for Module A, however it wasn’t as detailed as I expected.

The course content was highly relevant addressing the conceptual aspects to be addressed as well as providing strategies for teaching. Barbara Stanners continues to provide the highest standard in training. The Tempest/HagSeed module addresses all aspects of the topic, provides a stimulating range of activities and includes sophisticated resources. - -

The lessons and handouts were relevant and useful however the youtube links in session one were focussed on a different Shakespearean play

Extremely relevant, especially since the Module is new. The content includes lots of video, audio and written material that enriched understanding and gives a variety of perspectives. This course is invaluable for those teaching ‘Textual Conversations’ for the first time. It brings together a wealth of material and activities to enhance our own understanding, and thereby our students' understanding of the texts and the concept of the ‘textual conversation’. - -
