Story Making, and Higher Order Thinking Skills

Just received an exciting email from Kathy Wickstead, National Subject Lead for Languages.

She writes -
ALL (Association of Language Learners) is co-hosting a FREE workshop at the International Learning and Research Centre, South Gloucestershire, which will bring together teachers in key stages 2 and 3 to look at two inspirational approaches to language learning, Story Making and using Higher Order Thinking Skills. The workshop will show how these approaches engage pupils and can help to develop a smooth transition between key stages. Using actions and a 'story map', the story-making initiative takes pupils step by step from listening to participation, to story-telling and creating their own stories. It raises confidence in speaking and enables pupils to internalise key language patterns.
Date: Wednesday 17th March
Time: 9.30 - 12.30 (refreshments from 9.00)
Venue: The International Learning and Research Centre, South Gloucestershire
The Centre is located on the outskirts of Bristol, a taxi-ride from Bristol Temple Meads or Bristol Parkway stations.
A great opportunity - sadly I have a meeting and should be teaching anyway so I'll be unable to go. But if anyone does go, please be sure to share!!
