Teaching A’ Level English for the First Time

Date:               Monday 20 January 2020  

Time:              10am – 4pm

Cost:               £150.00pp

 

Delivered by Shireen Dhondy, a Specialist Leader of Education in English and has a wealth of experience teaching A’ Level English.

The curriculum for English at A level is exciting and varied. It gives students the opportunity to read, analyse and critique the genres of poetry, prose and drama and understand the greater contextual and literary significance. There is the opportunity for schools to teach both canonical works and the modern texts that are continuing to shape the world today. The demands that lie in store for new teachers new to A level revolve around teaching mixed ability classes and delivering a larger and more intensive curriculum. This course aims to teach skills and strategies to enable new A level teachers to deliver lessons which nurture students on their journey to becoming critical thinkers who are enthusiastic and opinionated about literature. We will look at teaching the disciplines of both exam writing and coursework writing to ensure successful outcomes for students and give them a sound footing for their university courses, whatever they may be.

This course will address strategies to:

  • Teach mixed ability classes
  • Teach how to construct academic argument
  • Teach how to construct larger essays for coursework
  • Teach how to use critical material appropriately
  • Nurture critical thinkers
  • Embed wider reading in the syllabus
  • Nurture independent reading, research and planning
  • Access and use a broader spectrum of contextual material
  • Inspire students with the confidence to choose their own texts and have their own opinions about them for their coursework
