Workshops for Teachers

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.

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.

– Shakespeare: Othello and Macbeth
– Reading Poetry, Hearing Voices: approaches to teaching poetry as well as Creative
Reading and Creative Writing
– Jane Eyre and approaches to nineteenth century prose and Lord of the Flies and
approaches to the contemporary novel
