24LC 10 017 - 'Exploring the Graphic Novel and Film in Junior Cycle English, through David Almond's The Savage and Sing Street directed by John Carney.'

''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.
