EMC CPD Online: Bringing Challenging Texts to Life at KS3 & KS4 – Text Adaptations (Twilight 6.12.22 4.15-5.45pm) Part of the 2 for 1 offer – see 'How to book'.

Drawing on her new short story collection, An Inspector Called and Other Text Transformations, Barbara will offer ways of using text transformations and adaptations to help students engage with and interpret some of the challenging texts they are faced with in KS3 and KS4 English classrooms. The session will introduce how this might work practically, with a few commonly taught texts and a taste of the stories in the collection, to show how one might prime students for reading a challenging text, introduce fresh angles along the way, or bring new insights after reading.
