English curriculum focus of new Norwich event
Published on 13/02/19
Applying a knowledge-rich approach to teaching English will be the focus of a new curriculum conference in Norwich this summer.
The English & Knowledge event will discuss the complexities of ‘English' as a subject with multi-disciplinary roots and explore the way this unfolds in our schools both at primary and secondary.
Hearing from school teachers, leaders and curriculum thinkers about their curriculum journey, the choices they have made in their English curriculum and how these have been enacted in the classroom, the conference will consider what it means to design and teach a knowledge-rich English curriculum.
Confirmed speakers for the symposium on June 29 include Summer Turner, Claire Heald, Matthew Carnaby, Lia Martin, Elisabeth Bowling, Claire Stoneman, and Bennie Kara.
The event is being held at Jane Austen College in Norwich. The city has an outstanding pedigree in literature, being a UNESCO City of Literature, home to the University of East Anglia's world-famous creative writing MA and one of the UK's busiest public libraries, and the location of the writing of the first book in English authored by a woman.
Tickets are £35 per person, but delegates can book before the end of April for a £5 early bird discount.
