For teachers of A-level History, English Literature and/or Film Studies
The University of Manchester’s American Studies programme is delighted to announce a workshop for teachers of A-Level subjects involving US content and themes. In particular the event will cover relevant US material for A-Levels in History, Film, and English Literature (all leading examination boards addressed). Attendees will hear short presentations on US historical topics, such as the civil rights movement and Cold War; overviews of key literary periods and interpretations of individual writers and texts, such as Toni Morrison; readings of some contemporary US films; and will be introduced to new sources, resources, and recent scholarly interpretations. There will also be a brief overview of how to work with students on US topics around EPQs.
Attendance is free and light refreshments will be provided, along with a certificate of attendance that can be used for CPD credit.
