Once again this event will be fully online to cater for all members and their students. This year the materials will come to you live on Wednesday 8 September. The recorded materials will then be available until examination week in October.
Flexible modes of delivery will allow you and your students to engage with the materials at a time that suits you.

Details of the program
The program will consist of three sessions:
A. Writing the analytical essay: pre-recorded materials available from 3pm, Wednesday 8 September.
B. Text webinars: pre-recorded, based on the EA texts from the Prescribed Text List and available from 3pm, Wednesday 8 September.
C. Live discussions in 30-minute blocks at 4, 4:30 and 5pm on Wednesday 8 September. These Zoom sessions will primarily relate to Writing the Analytical Essay, but students will be free to ask questions about their selected texts. These discussions will not be recorded.
The link to the live discussion is intended for the use of the registered class teacher, or for students who have individually registered. Teachers should only provide a zoom link for student use if we are in lockdown. Even though sound and video will be disabled for the meeting, we expect that a class teacher is the supervisor for a class event and they will monitor appropriate conduct of their students, either at school with them or in remote learning.
The link to the pre-recorded text sessions on Vimeo can and should be shared with students.
Organising your sessions: Students can view sessions A and/or B with their teachers on Wednesday afternoon from 3pm and participate in our live discussion afterwards. Or schools can choose to use the materials to run their own workshops at a convenient time. Students may also register independently.
A note about timing on the Wednesday afternoon: Students will only get to the 4:00pm live discussion session if they watch the Session A workshops consecutively with little or no time for discussion or reflection or activities suggested by the presenters. This might work well, if students are intending to return to the materials and watch Session B later. However, others may want a more fulsome real-time experience with their students. Our suggestion is that attending the 5pm conversation should allow fairly complete engagement with at least the Session A materials, with a little left over for some discussion or a break.
