    How about asking a few English teachers on some ideas they use in the classroom to teach English. Or maybe on ways they get kids to approach difficult texts like Shakespeare or a 19thC novel in KS3? Or how about linking how English is used on a whole-school based level?

    There's quite a bit of things. You could even talk about the evolution of education in literature.

    An interesting idea is maybe asking some more experienced teachers if they still teach any of the texts they studied at school and looking at how curriculum for English has changed over time?

    There's some ideas that should hopefully get you thinking!

    Good luck!
