Spoken Word – staff training

Do you want to be more adventurous in your teaching of poetry?

Secondary tagsTraining and advice tags

We have developed a 1 hour staff session for English teachers who want the opportunity to think about how they deliver poetry lessons to students. The session seeks to provide ideas about how to make poetry feel more relevant and accessible to students across KS3 and 4, and to explore it as a form of spoken word performance. The session will offer fun, practical and interactive ideas and will finish with the opportunity to reflect on the activities and think how you might adapt or differentiate them to suit your own class.

  • 1 spoken word workshop is 1 hour.
    We’ll also provide you with a digital handout and ideas for lesson plans and a small collection of free verse books to borrow until the end of term.

You can choose this as one of your professional development modules as part of your subscription, or buy as a one off session from our pay-as-you-go menu.

Recommend to maybe Yr. 7 & 8 tutors
Good mix of trying out activities and watching clips etc. Thank you.
Amazing range of resources highlighted and shared. Excited to use these in lessons, thank you!
Good range of ages too – I have ideas for Y7 through to Y13.
Excellent, pacy delivery with a great range of resources shared. Some very useful ideas that would be easy to implement/adapt for several year groups.
