    The Tempest

    I am tutoring a group of boys studying for their HSC English and we need to study The Tempest as an example of an Imaginary Journey. They are having a great deal of trouble coming to terms with the text, let alone any interpretation. Any wonderful teaching ideas?

    Introduce yourself here

    My name is Jan Fagan from Tamworth, NSW Australia. I taught History and English at the Secondary level for many years and then changed course to teach Special Education to Primary children. I became involved with senior studies again as my daughter completed fer final year of schooling Higher School Certificate (HSC) and have taken on a group of students to tutor. This is a group of 6 boys who struggle with the demands of the modern English syllabus. Thank you to those who have already given me ideas for teaching The Tempest to reluctant readers!
