EMC CPD Online: English for Non-specialists (session 3)

Course content

This session forms part of our course English for Non-specialists. It is not available for booking separately. Please see Wednesday 4th November to book your place.

Each session of this course for non-specialists is designed boost your knowledge and equip you with skills and strategies. As most non-specialists are teaching at KS3 this will be our main focus, but the principles and approaches can also be applied to GCSE. The equivalent of a full day, this course will be run in three, linked twilight sessions and will include plenty of resources and classroom ideas. There will be an opportunity for some interaction to explore how some of the activities would work with students. This course will run with limited numbers to allow for a more interactive and personalised experience and a chance to have your teaching questions answered.

Session 3 (Wednesday 9th December)

  • Teaching vocabulary, spelling, grammar and punctuation.
  • Teaching the 19th century: working with a Victorian short story.

Further details

  • This course will be limited to 30 participants.
  • Due to the interactive nature of this course (with people encouraged to have their cameras on at various points) this course will not be recorded

Resources

  • For some sessions course materials will be sent the day before the course in the email with your joining instructions. Please either print these out or have them available on screen during the session.
  • After the session you will receive the PowerPoint presentation and any resources used.
