EMC English Courses for Teachers

Disappointing Results for A Level Literature – Tackling the Problems

Tuesday 18th November 2014
Course Tutors - Barbara Bleiman & Lucy Webster

This course draws on EMC staff’s extensive work with teachers and directly with students, to improve results in English Literature A Level. It will help you to explore the reasons behind students’ poor achievement and offer you classroom strategies for sharpening up your own teaching, developing students’ sense of what’s needed in the exam and working with them on their writing. The focus will be primarily on exam performance, though many of the generic issues may be of relevance to coursework as well.
