AS Language and Literature teachers, IGCSE Literature teachers, secondary school teachers interested in helping students improve their writing
- To promote a genre-based approach to teach students to write literature-related answers required by international exams.
- To offer teachers resources, strategies and possible activities to help students write different types of literature-related answers (essay questions, passage-based questions of seen and unseen literary texts, among others).
- To share examples of rubrics that bridge the gap between external assessment criteria and self-assessment.
- The international exam paper as a genre and the importance of specific language in argumentative writing: words, expressions and phraseology to use and to avoid.
- The construction of cohesive and solid argumentative texts through different dynamics (individually, in pairs, in groups, whole-class).
- The relevance of (self-)assessment criteria.
- Discussion of frequent problems related to teaching to write literature-related answers required by international exams - Exploration of specific features in the different types of answers, similarities and differences - Guided group reflection on answers provided by the participants on possible activities, resources and strategies
