Module overview

Are you interested in helping young people study English? This module will introduce you to teaching creative writing in secondary schools by providing training in effective classroom management and guidance on designing lesson plans for studying fiction and poetry. With a fellow student on the course, you will go on a placement in a secondary school in Southampton where you will help pupils develop their creativity and their knowledge of literary culture. Throughout the module, you will be encouraged to reflect on the critical and practical problems you encounter teaching, and to consider how the National Curriculum supports creativity in the classroom.
