More Golden Dogberries …

bh-golden-dogberry-smallIf there’s any small consolation to spending your half-term marking, it’s the occasional gem in your books.  Hence my decision to award ‘Golden Dogberries‘ for ‘extraordinary’ student responses …

Today was no exception, not least when Y8 were recently asked to compose a diary entry from the point of view of one of the major characters involved in the jilting scene of Much Ado About Nothing

Actually, I’ve had to cut the entries down a bit – there was an awful lot of vitriol towards the ‘cheating’ Hero on the part of various ‘Claudios’, but there were still one or two worth adding to the roll of honour.  Even as I make separate notes about unacceptable attitudes towards women!

You can see the Golden Dogberries I’ve found so far in 2017 – updated every time I mark a class’ work on Shakespeare/EMP texts, by clicking here.
