The focus of this programme is the provision of opportunities for yourselves as current English teachers in Post Compulsory Education to develop your understanding of literacy theories and frameworks.
We will cover grammatical approaches to analysing texts, We will develop your critical analysis through study of the frameworks of English. You will apply those frameworks to comment on a specific text that you have used in an English classroom. You will have the opportunity to discuss theoretical ideas and your application of those in your own teaching situations and those of your peer’s. The programme is informed by your own teaching practices and experiences and provides both practical and theoretical insights and a networking opportunity that could extend beyond the programme duration.
