English Language/Literature: Approaches To Analysing Previously Unseen Texts With Dr David Nowell-Smith From University Of East Anglia
26th November 2020 @ 14:00 - 15:00
THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED
How do we analyse an unseen text?
In this interactive masterclass, Dr David Nowell Smith of UEA will introduce students to strategies and approaches that offer any easy way to unlock the workings of even the most complex text.
We’ll focus on one short text, highlighting general strategies and having an opportunity to test them out together.
Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.
