Primary school and lower secondary school Language and Literature teachers, working towards the training of future candidates of IGCSE, AS or other international exams
• To acquaint teachers with new texts to be used in the Language/Literature classroom.
• 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 acquaint teachers with new materials which might be both engaging for students to
read and solid preparation for later set exams (IGCSE)
Participants will be provided with a handout with extracts of relevant parts in the
texts so as to be able to appreciate linguistic and stylistic features
in the texts.
NO PREVIOUS READING OF MATERIAL IS REQUIRED
The session will be organized in terms of a workshop for participants to enrich their understanding of the texts with contributions from the group. The participants will discuss the target audience for the text, points of entry, textual intervention strategies and intertextual links which can be established with other verbal or visual texts.
