A comprehensive and practical handbook on the teaching of classical subjects within the UK school system. Changing Classic in Schools looks towards making classics accessible to a new generation of students. The first part looks at classics in primary schools, and its relationship with the curriculum and the Primary National Strategy. Drawing on evidence from a storytelling project with primary schools in east London, it shows how an oral retelling of Homer's Iliad can both provide a stimulating introduction to the classical world and make a significant contribution to literacy teaching. In the second half of the book, author examines the role of ICT in promoting effective teaching and learning and in extending access to Latin.
