Creative CPD Workshop with Michael Rosen

Please join us for a special workshop led by the renowned author, Michael Rosen, our ‘poet in residence’ at Historyworks. In this invaluable session, Michael will share his knowledge and experience for reading and writing both prose and poetry, and will introduce methods for supporting students of primary and lower secondary school age, followed by Q&A session.

In this CPD workshop, author Michael Rosen & public historian Helen Weinstein, will introduce teachers to ways of supporting students to improve their reading and writing of both poetry and prose. Historyworks has made a huge number of free resources with Michael Rosen for Cambridgeshire schools, which we will showcase at the event. All participants will receive two signed books from Michael Rosen, the latter recently published, aimed at primary and early secondary school teachers. Teachers will be taken through Michael’s guidance about how students can be encouraged to embrace reading and also improve the content of their writing by evaluating their narrative ingredients using his top tips. Helen Weinstein will showcase a variety of resources including history stories, walking trails, poetry and songs which have been devised by Michael Rosen and Historyworks, for teachers to use both inside and outside the classroom, to enhance learning across the curriculum. The main aim at the end of a long school day will be to inspire teachers, share practical tips and free resources, have fun with words in poetry and prose, and also eat chocolate cake together!

Time: 4pm Chocolate Cake social followed by 4.30pm/6pm Workshop with

Michael Rosen and Helen Weinstein, supported by Historyworks.

Tickets: £10 Teaching & Education Professionals. Fee covers refreshments

plus two books: “What Is Poetry?” and “Poetry and Stories for Primary and

Lower Secondary Schools” or £1 (ADMISSION ONLY)
