English Curriculum Development Workshops - Session 5

to

Unfortunately, due to the current climate, the University has reluctantly reached the view that the event taking place on Monday 8 June 2020 should be postponed. The University is very sorry to find itself in this position but hope you understand the decision we have had to take.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus when organisers have been able to re-schedule a new date.

A series of curriculum-focused twilight workshops for secondary English teachers.

What's happening?

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 five takes focuses on Nurturing and celebrating talk

We will evaluate the difficulties around fully integrating talk within the English classroom given external pressures to focus on reading and writing. There will be opportunity to critique models of formal and informal talk within English curricula.​
