Conference Papers

Neil's powerpoint and/or a summary will be available here soon. So will Valerie's grid! You can find links below to the other workshop papers. I will be selling Neil's new book at the LATE BFI conference on 5th December. Details:

Butterfly Lion

An information gap activity with four texts and illustrations on the disparate topics included in this book. Designed as a prequel to studying this transition text. Observation grid (based on the work of the Oracy Project) for assessing speaking and listening.

Food and Babies

Another Jigsaw!

An introduction to satire. An information gap prequel to the study of Swift's Modest Proposal with information on Ireland, colonies, foundlings and methods of protest.

Oliver Twist

A mini information gap

A character card game with a difference. There are no cards for Oliver only for the other characters. A set of Olivers have to earwig the discussion to find out about themselves.


Another transition text!

A character card game and connect four to support this transition text.
