Teaching Novels at KS3 (Super Saturday)

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 novels, think about which might suit your students and reflect on exactly what you want your students to learn when studying the novel form. You will have the chance to hear about EMC classroom research which is already transforming the way that teachers approach teaching the novel. To make this a special day, you will also have the chance to meet and talk to Sita Brahmachari, 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 YA author, Sita Brahmachari.

NB. This is a repeat course. 


As always, so much to take away to immediately transform my teaching. Looking forward to putting it into action on Monday.
