Watching Theatre – an ADEI Drama in Education Workshop is taking place on Sat. 1st March.
The attendance fee has been reduced with further reduction for groups of two or more.
Alan King, who will facilitate the workshop, has long experience in working with drama and theatre with young people and their teachers. He will incorporate interactive work on at least one of the plays - War Horse -from the current Junior Cycle syllabus in the workshop in an exploration of encouraging young people to enjoy, interpret and critique plays.
The ADEI looks forward to seeing as many as possible on the day. Please see below pdf for further details etc.
INOTE have been working on behalf of English teachers since the publication of the Draft Specification for Junior Cycle and again since the publication of the Framework for Junior Cycle.
Currently we have two executive members on the Junior Cycle English Development Committee (who meet with the NCCA) who fervently and tirelessly represent the views of English teachers at that level.
The executive responded both as individuals and as a group, to the Draft Specification. This response is attached this post.
We published an on-line petition regarding assessment of students by their own teachers as part of the new Junior Certificate English course and emailed each member on 28/5/2013, requesting them to participate in the petition and make their voices heard in relation to the reforms taking place. If you haven’t already signed please join us and let your voice be heard, visit: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/the-new-junior-cycle-school-certificate-needs/inote response 2
We are planning our upcoming Conference for September 2014 and are dedicating it completely to up-skilling English teachers on how to implement these changes in a very practical way. We hope to use lesson plans on the three areas of the curriculum.
Finally, we are working with the JCT to begin rolling out more CPD for English teachers to prepare them for the changes we will face in September.
