BRIDGES FOR LEARNING: LITERATURE AND LITERACY ACROSS THE CURRICULUM

Conference outline and aims: Recent initiatives, including the new literacy framework, stress the importance of making cross-curricular links, and advocate innovative approaches to learning and teaching within a creative curriculum. We are told that ‘The essence of creativity is in making new connections, and cross curricular learning encourages this process’. This conference asks what are the advantages of cross-curricular approaches? And how can we best use good quality literature to build the bridges between key aspects of literacy learning across the curriculum, to expand young minds and enable real learning?

Keynote speakers will draw on their expertise to offer a range of thought-provoking approaches to learning, exemplifying cross-curricular models and providing literary stimuli. Exciting, innovative practice will be showcased by leading practitioners in a wide range of workshops, and the Huddersfield Children’s Bookshop will be on-site so that you can get started straight away!
