Aspire to… English – Human Rights Edition @ Manchester Metropolitan University – 11/03/20

Event providers: Manchester Metropolitan University

Event Fallback Image

A Human Rights themed day, designed to motivate reluctant learners and improve their interpretative skills.

This curriculum enrichment activity is delivered by Manchester Metropolitan Faculty Student Ambassadors.

It is designed to motivate struggling and reluctant readers and writers, who are at risk of underachieving at GCSE, by improving their ability to understand and interpret non-fiction texts. Therefore, we strongly recommend bringing learners around the 3/4/5 grade points.

Learners will analyse the ways in which non-fiction texts deploy a wide range of techniques to convey key messages to their audiences and how they impact upon them.

The day’s workshops will study these techniques through the lens of human rights, providing a pertinent and topical ‘hook’ for today’s young people.
