Super Saturday – Teaching Novels at KS3
Why should you attend?
This course explores which novels might best be taught at KS3 with strategies for how to teach them. You will find out about recent publications, think about which novels might suit your students and reflect on exactly what you want your students to learn when studying the novel. You will have the chance to hear about EMC classroom research which is transforming the way that teachers in one school approach teaching the novel. To make this a special day, you will also have the chance to meet and talk to a leading YA fiction writer.
What will the course cover?
- Teaching contemporary and classic novels – what, where, how?
- The importance of a whole text approach.
- Encouraging and developing personal responses.
- Meet and talk to Alex Wheatle, author of the award-winning Crongton Knights series.
Really interesting and stimulating.
