Upper Primary and Secondary School Language and Literature Teachers
• To acquaint teachers with a highly acclaimed novel ideal to work with in the Language/Literature class.
• To provide teachers with innovative teaching strategies that will allow them to make the most of the novel.
• To relate the novel to the themes of migrants, refugees and dictatorships and to make intertextual references through these themes
• To acquaint teachers with new materials which might be both engaging for students to read and solid preparation for later set exams (IGCSE).
Participants will be provided with a presentation with extracts of relevant parts in the
texts so as to be able to appreciate linguistic and stylistic features in the text.
We'll analyse the target audience for the text, points of entry, textual intervention strategies and intertextual links which can be established with other verbal or visual texts.
