Living Room Literature for Teachers redefines INSET for English teaching professionals. There are so many novels that we teach year after year but quite often our ideas become stale and our teaching a little dull. This course provides an opportunity for you to reconnect with those novels, to remind you why they are great, and to take your understanding of and pleasure in the text further.
I will provide the stimulus to exciting discussion, offering contextual and critical background; encouraging you to renew your excitement for the great works of literature that we are so lucky to teach to young people. And not a single plastic chair, desk or student in view; instead I offer you comfortable sofas, a coffee table full of home-made cake, and a silver tabby cat who will ensure we remain on topic.
