English Conference: Writing and reading across the curriculum

Building on the popularity of the CLC’s previous professional development sessions to support reading for pleasure and writing, this academic year we are running a whole-day conference for English subject leaders and teachers interested in literacy.

The conference will explore the current context of the English curriculum and showcase practical ideas to encourage a book rich environment in school, where children talk about books and create responses to their pleasure in reading using digital technologies.

Sessions will include:

  • Reading for pleasure, online book reviews and digital books
  • Games, virtual worlds and writing
  • Digital writing and blogging
  • Creating audio poetry collections
  • Green screen, dramatising books
  • Animation for literacy

By attending this course teachers will understand the opportunities offered by digital writing and publishing, have a range of ideas and activities for engaging children in reading and writing and feel confident using a variety of apps and software.
