Title of post
Creative Workshop with Michael Rosen & Historyworks for Cambridgeshire Teaching and Education Professionals

7th Mar 2018 4:00pm

7th Mar 2018 6:00pm


In this CPD workshop poet Michael Rosen & public historian Helen Weinstein, will introduce teachers to ways of supporting students to improve their understanding and writing of both poetry and prose. Historyworks has made a huge number of free resources with Michael Rosen for Cambridgeshire schools, which we will showcase at the event.  All participants will receive two signed books from Michael Rosen, the latter recently published, aimed at primary and early secondary school teachers.  Teachers will be taken through Michael’s guidance about how students can be encouraged to improve the content of their writing, by evaluating their narrative ingredients, using his top tips.  Helen Weinstein will showcase a variety of resources including history stories, walking trails, poetry and songs which have been devised by Michael Rosen and Historyworks, for teachers to use both inside and outside the classroom, to enhance learning across the curriculum. The main aim at the end of a long school day will be to inspire teachers, share practical tips and free resources, have fun with words in poetry and prose, and also eat chocolate cake together!
