24-6363 Exploring the Graphic Novel and Film in Junior Cycle English, through David Almond's The Savage and Sing Street directed by John Carney

This webinar is aimed at mainstream teachers of Junior Cycle English.

We will explore how a selection of learning outcomes* can be brought to life through a range of learning experiences as students engage with David Almond's graphic novel The Savage and Sing Street directed by John Carney.

The webinar will illustrate how learning experiences can deepen and consolidate learning outcomes through key moments in The Savage, whilst also making links and connections from this learning to other text forms, prmarily the film Sing Street.

We will share how extended writing opportunities emerge allowing students to develop the Collection of Student's Texts, CBA 2.

Teachers will gain insight into how their students may apply this learning to questions in the final state examination.

Teachers who attend this webinar will receive an accompanying resource pack.

 *Learning Outcomes in Focus: OL1, OL8, R2, R7, R9, W4, W8, W12
