Continuing Professional Development training for teachers.

SUPER TUESDAY CPD

We believe that everyone is creative and that this is a key element in effective learning. Our package of CPD offerings gives teaching staff in any setting and across the curriculum the confidence to enjoy using the arts as a tool for teaching and learning.

These enjoyable, practical CPD sessions will allow class teachers to develop a host of skills which can be put into action immediately to help deliver Curriculum for Excellence.

HATE CRIME: RAISING AWARENESS

CfE Second Level (P6-7 specifically)
Date: Tuesday 6 February 2018
Time: 4pm – 6pm (twilight)
Cost: £20 (refreshments will be included)
Venue: The Citizens Theatre, 119 Gorbals Street, Glasgow, G5 9DS (there is a free car park or Bridge Street underground station is a 5 min walk away)

A range of tried and tested, practical drama activities to raise your pupils’ awareness and understanding of hate crime, in a way which is entirely relevant to their lives. This workshop equips you with the confidence and resources to explore this important subject, and provides an immersive and dynamic introduction to any work on discrimination and prejudice you are carrying out with your class.

The Scottish Government defines hate crime as ‘any criminal offence motivated by malice and ill-will towards a social group’ and is committed to tackling, ‘prejudice motivated by race, religion and belief, sexual orientation, disability, age, gender and gender reassignment.’ Hate Crime: Raising Awareness complements delivery of Health and Wellbeing within the CfE, providing pupils with tools for life.

“The workshop explored some really important ideas in a way which made them accessible, relevant and exciting for the pupils.” (Teacher, St Peter’s PS, West Dunbartonshire)

BRINGING PICTURE BOOKS TO LIFE

CfE Early and First Levels (Nursery – P3)
Date: Tuesday 20 February 2018
Time: 4pm – 6pm (twilight)
Cost: £20 (refreshments will be included)
Venue: The Citizens Theatre, 119 Gorbals Street, Glasgow, G5 9DS (there is a free car park or Bridge Street underground station is a 5 min walk away)

This workshop is a step by step guide to bringing favourite picture books to life in the classroom. We’ll provide you with a range of drama tools to engage children’s imagination and help them get closer to the story and the language used to tell it. These easy to use activities will provide a richer learning experience, ensuring even the shyest child develops their confidence with creative movement and speaking.
In the workshop we’ll use some well-loved picture books to demonstrate drama techniques you can use with your class’s own favourite book. Put these into action to enhance children’s enjoyment, to complement topic work or develop this activity into a performance.

BRINGING CHILDREN’S NOVELS TO LIFE

CfE Second Level
Date: Tuesday 6 March 2018
Time: 4pm – 6pm (twilight)
Cost: £20 (refreshments will be included)
Venue: The Citizens Theatre, 119 Gorbals Street, Glasgow, G5 9DS (there is a free car park or Bridge Street underground station is a 5 min walk away)

This session is packed with a range of enjoyable drama techniques to help your pupils really get inside the world of the novel they are reading. We’ll give you the tools to help them explore the issues, characters, relationships, themes and language the writer uses in an engaging and immersive way. Young people’s literature is a brilliant stimulus for drama, and in turn, taking part in drama related to the novel will have a positive impact on your pupils own literacy skills, improving their enjoyment of reading, writing, speaking and listening.

In the workshop we’ll use a well-known children’s novel to demonstrate techniques you can use with any novel you are reading with your upper primary class.
