Poetry in the Classroom CPD Event

Date: 
Thursday, 9 May, 2019 - 17:30 to 19:30
Event Type: 
Workshop
Region: 
North West
Location: 
Geoffrey Manton Building, Manchester Metropolitan University

This event is part of a year-long project, leading to the opening of the Manchester Poetry Library in Spring 2020. We are looking to celebrate the best of what is going on in Manchester schools and also to support schools, whatever the levels of confidence or engagement, in accessing support and information about projects and events. This is an opportunity for teachers and librarians to get some practical ideas and resources that will help celebrate poetry in your school. There will be information, an opportunity to sign up to showcase work already going on in your school, opportunities to request a poet visit and information about other events. We want to respond to your needs, so the programme of activity on the night will be shaped according to your responses when you register.

Programme: 

9th May – Thursday 5.30pm-7.30pm

Geoffrey Manton Building, Manchester Metropolitan University

Suitable for: teachers, librarians and other educators – all Key Stages
