Poetry by Heart
Thu 21 Feb 2013
Book now for one of the free CPD days, devised to support creative and engaging methods of teaching poetry, with a particular emphasis on poetry, memorisation and performance.
Those attending will work with a poet or other expert to develop their own skills and practices in reading poetry aloud, as well as exploring new/revived practices for teaching poetry across the secondary age range.

Each day will be enhanced by time to talk to a member of the Poetry By Heart team about all aspects of the project and the competition.  We will also consider the evidence for the value of poetry performance and memorisation, drawing on recent research and other publications. In addition, a pack of materials will be provided to further inform and inspire your teaching.

Refreshments are provided at all events, and lunch is provided on full-day events.

All events are free and are open to teachers, teacher educators, student teachers, poets, publishers and those working in cultural organisations at local and national levels. Teachers at schools and colleges enrolled in this year’s competition have been given priority.
