Talk about Literature in ELT
There has been growing interest in the role of literature in the English language classroom, and discourse and resources for teachers have grown exponentially over the past year or two. Following on from the highly successful conference on the role of children’s literature held in Hildesheim, Germany, in February 2010 and also to connect various disparate groups of teachers and teachers-in-training concerned with using literature, the British Council are launching this forum.
The format is simple enough. Each month we will invite either an experienced voice from the world of ELT, or an author or poet with experience of writing for and working with young people, to field a discussion. Each discussion will be moderated, and will last around three weeks. To start the proceedings we were delighted to have Alan Pulverness as our guest contributor. You can see Alan's, and our latest writers' work, below.
We look forward to hearing what you have to say on the topics raised by our guest contributors and anticipate a lively exchange of ideas and opinions.
