Language, Literacy and Literature: Re-imagining Teaching and Learning
UKLA and Egmont UK have collaborated to produce high quality professional development and teaching materials with the aim of developing the critical reading of magazines in KS2 classrooms ( although we feel they would be of interest in KS3 and ITE as well). The practical workshops aim to promote the critical reading of magazines in schools, an understanding of why and how magazines are produced, and to emphasise the value of including children’s magazines in an inspiring reading curriculum.
Continuing his series of ideas for teaching children how language works, this month Jim Crinson takes another look at the prepositional phrase and the fun children can have playing with language.
We are grateful to Helen Hancock for allowing us to offer articles from the Primary English Magazine and the Secondary English Magazine to members.
