Starting to Teach A Level Language & Literature

Why should you attend?

This cross-specification course will explore what makes Lang/Lit a distinctive subject and how to teach it in exciting and stimulating ways. We will look at key concepts and approaches, with classroom strategies (illustrated on shorts texts taken from a range of different specifications) that can be used and adapted for any Lang/Lit course. You will go away with a set of tools for analysis, resources to use or adapt and greater confidence to teach the course.

What will the course cover?

  • What makes Lang/Lit a distinctive subject? Developing your own subject knowledge.
  • Set texts, anthologies and unseen texts – key skills for students and classroom strategies.
  • Creative and transformative writing to improve analysis.
  • An introduction to stylistics approaches, with classroom strategies to explore and analyse texts from literary texts to non-fiction and spoken language.

NB. This is a repeat course.
