Texts and Teachers: A level English Literature conference
At Oxford Spires School
In conjunction with the Faculty of English, the Deanery is hosting an event to connect teachers of A level English Literature with researchers working on A level texts. On the day teachers will take part in two 3 hour seminars, each on a different topic in the reformed A level English Literature specifications. Researchers from the English Faculty will design seminars to connect teachers with current research and up to date critical thinking, which will refresh their knowledge, stimulate their thinking, and provide resources for future teaching. A plenary question and answer session with Professor Elleke Boehmer on diversity and the literature curriculum will top off the day.
The choice of seminars can be found by following the link below. Teachers are asked to opt for their top four options, and will be placed in two of them.
The structure of the day will be:
Plenary with Professor Elleke Boehmer 10-11am
Seminar 1: 11-1.30
Seminar 2: 2.15-3.45
End of day: 3.45
Lunch will be provided.
Thanks to the generosity of the Oxford University Public Engagement with Research fund, the event is completely free and open to all teachers of English Literature A level. There are a maximum of 150 places, and the deadline for registration is March 15th.
Join us for what promises to be a fantastic day of subject-based learning and development!
