Decolonising the English GCSE Curriculum: Workshops for Teachers
How do you bring diverse voices into the GCSE English classroom? How can you work within the requirements of the National Curriculum to decolonise your teaching?
Roehampton’s English and Creative Writing academics have devised a series of 60-minute professional development workshops for teachers of KS3 and KS4 English to take place virtually in February 2020.
Drawing on our own work ongoing work to expand the diversity of voices represented within our undergraduate curriculum, these interactive sessions will be delivered by a specialist in the field and are a fantastic way to explore ideas for adding variety to your own teaching. Participants will also receive a learning resource pack including fun, interactive lesson plans.
Sessions focus on particular set texts as examples, but provide material suitable for teaching a range of GCSE set texts, so there is something for everyone in each session.
This session's topic will be on:
• Jane Eyre and approaches to nineteenth century prose
• Lord of the Flies and approaches to the contemporary novel
