Abstract

Through close examination of two year 9 lessons, this article sets out to investigate ways in which the discourse of the SATs (National Curriculum tests) impacts upon these students’ interactions with the playtext. It raises questions about pedagogic purpose and queries received assumptions about ‘active Shakespeare’ methods.
