8m 54s
This tutorial discusses how Bennett highlights different teaching styles and how he continually creates dramatic effect throughout the play? It gives further analysis of key characters, examines the impact when Irwin and Headmaster interrupt funny class in French and demonstrates how Irwin’s new style of teaching can be seen as cynical and manipulative. We look at the boys' reaction to Irwin and covers the following themes: education, sex, teaching styles, trust between teacher and student.
