English Curriculum Development Workshops - Session Three
A series of curriculum-focused twilight workshops for secondary English teachers.
These two-hour twilight sessions are designed to offer secondary English teachers the opportunity to reflect on the current curriculum diet offered in school, with a focus on nurturing a love of learning whilst meeting the demands of the new Ofsted framework. The sessions provide the chance to gain a broader view of the English curriculum landscape, network with fellow English enthusiasts, and refine articulations of ‘intent’, ’implementation’ and ‘impact’.
Throughout the 2019/20 year, we will be offering six two-hour CPD sessions, focused on:
- Key Stage Three: Revitalising the English curriculum - Monday 30 September
- Assessment: Reimagining ways of measuring progress - Monday 18 November
- Developing readers - Monday 27 January
- Developing writers - Monday 23 March
- Nurturing and celebrating talk - Monday 8 June
- Managing transitions (KS2-3, KS3-4 and KS4-5) - Monday 6 July
Session three takes focuses on Developing Readers
We will explore the tensions around maintaining breadth whilst developing precision in the classroom when reading texts. We will discuss the process of text selection and sequencing, and unpick what notions of ‘challenge’, ‘diversity’ and ‘cultural capital’ might mean for our students.
Monday 27 January
Other sessions take place throughout the year.
The sessions cost £40 each per school for up to two delegates or £200 for all six sessions.
