Wednesday 24 April | 16:00 | KS3 Classics and English CPD | Online

Using Classical Heroes and Mythology in Key Stage 3 English

Alastair Thorley is an experienced Classics teacher and A Level examiner. He has produced resources for the Classical Association on the Classical Civilisation GCSE syllabus and has trained teachers new to the subject through both Classics For All and Keynote. He also contributed to two of the A Level Classical Civilisation textbooks.

Alastair has created resources based on the Mary Beard video on “Heroes” and will be discussing how these resources can be used by teachers.

The idea of what it means to be a hero is always interesting and endlessly evolving. The media prematurely and ironically announces the death of superhero movies in every weekly review of the latest contributions to the genre in the cinema or on the television. We have been, are and always will be fascinated by what it takes to be better than ourselves.

These resources have been designed to enable pupils to look behind the superhero and consider how these characters are created and made interesting and relatable. Neither the pupils nor the teacher needs to have any knowledge of Classical myths and all are encouraged to draw from their own personal experiences. The myths are told in the form of short, impactful videos. The resources could lead to the pupils producing a longer piece of creative writing but are also designed to be self-contained.

To register for the CPD please complete this form by Monday 22nd April. Zoom details for the event will be sent out on Tuesday 23rd April.
