Event Fallback Image

FREE online CPD session for English teachers at KS3/KS4

Join this event to share experiences and find inspiration to take poetry back to your classroom.

Organised by the Manchester Poetry Library, contemporary, award-winning poets, Malika Booker and Andrew McMillan, will join Joe Barber, an 11-19 English teacher for 14 years in conversation. Joe currently leads the Secondary English PGCE and the Subject Pedagogy Unit for the PGCE programme at Manchester Metropolitan University.

The discussion will explore the tension between the critical skills involved in appreciating and enjoying poetry and those required to teach it well. It will also discuss teachers’ experiences, perceptions and feelings about teaching poetry.
