Find a voice not read a script: Looking for the Heart of English

The discussion, involving many people concerned about English teaching, continues...

This event took place 6:00pm - 7:30pm Wednesday January 23rd, 2013

18.00 to 19.30PM Looking for the Heart of English involved 400 teachers across the country discussing what really matters in learning English. The government has made proposals which do not meet the high expectations of these teachers and many others. The launch of 'Meeting High Expectations: will the new primary curriculum be good enough for our children?' will bring out the vital learning which will enable young people to find their voices. This event will be part of the continuing conversation about English teaching and what learners really need. It will be high profile and will contribute to the consultation on the government proposals for a new curriculum. The evening will include those who contributed to publication, including Michael Boyd, ex artistic director of RSC and Chris Meade from If:book.  We will also hear from a primary headteacher, a secondary English teacher and a young poet.
