      EVENT DETAILS
      Using Comics to Develop Narrative Writing

      This CPD event will be delivered by Primary School teacher, Matthew Sullivan, who is just about to publish a teaching guide on this subject. The session will explore how comics can be utilised to improve characterisation, story planning, setting descriptions, spelling, punctuation, grammar and vocabulary. Matthew will also suggest ways that comics may be used to engage reluctant readers and develop comprehension skills, as well as enriching and enhancing learning for gifted and talented pupils.

      Teachers who attend the event will  be invited to register their interest in workshops which will be delivered by Humanities Student Ambassadors in schools. The workshops will aim to improve writing skills and raise the aspirations of underachieving pupils.

       

      There is a  £20 charge to attend this CPD session. You can pay in advance at:
