Primary/Secondary school heads, teachers & coordinators
- To acquaint teachers with various novel contemporary children's writers – most of them award-winning authors - whose work students will find both extremely appealing and easy reading.
- To propose authentic material, rather than graded readers, for an age group which is often difficult to please.
- To provide teachers with innovative teaching strategies that will allow them to make the most of the novels in preparation for future IGCSE ones.
- To provide Language/Literature teachers and librarians with background information about authors and texts being used and read nowadays in schools in English –speaking countries.
Extracts selected from recently published books will be included in the handout.
NO PREVIOUS READING OF MATERIAL IS REQUIRED
The participants will be provided with the material (extracts from texts) the day of the course. Due to the length of the texts used the reading and analysis will be done during the course.
The session will be organized in terms of book presentation, for participants to get a wider panorama of the recent literary production for children and young adults. The group will be provided with some short biodata of the authors (for background information) and some extracts from the texts to appreciate the style of writing. They might then discuss the target audience for each text, points of entry, textual interventions and intertextual links which can be established with other verbal or visual texts.
No specific theoretical bibliography will be used, being it a book presentation session.
