Monday 15th March

Posting early today, as I have an afternoon off, whoopee!

1. If you’re working in primary school or working with primary school teachers, I think you’ll find it both useful and enjoyable to attend this webinar on using picture books in the primary classroom at 12:00 UK time on Thursday, 18th March https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/picturebooks-european-primary-english-language-teaching-pepelt-virtual-resource-primary

The webinar will also include an introduction to the PEPELT project – Picturebooks in European Primary English Language Teaching https://pepelt21.com/

One of the speakers, Gail Ellis, co-wrote with Jean Brewster a book for primary English language teachers that I think I’m right in saying is still the most downloaded British Council publication ever, Tell it Again! I’ve attached a PDF below and you’ll find a link and more info here https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/tell-it-again-storytelling-handbook-primary-english-language-teachers

2. This is good (and open access; you may need to register), and I’ve just discovered it: Globe: A Journal of Language, Culture and Communication https://journals.aau.dk/index.php/globe/index

Here’s a link to an interesting piece on ‘exclusionary-inclusion’ by Kamal Raj Devkota from Tribhuvan University in Nepal: https://ddrn.dk/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Globe-2018.pdf#page=119 and I’ve attached a PDF of the whole special issue of Globe in which Dr Devotka’s piece was published below.

3. Venice Irving from Jamaica has a new podcast in her Becoming a Happy Teacher series – just in case you aren’t already a happy teacher! https://anchor.fm/becomingahappyteacher/episodes/Introducing-Teacher-self-care-esam1g

4. A reminder about York St John University’s online course for teachers, Changing Englishes https://changingenglishes.online/ Well worth a look if you’ve not already paid a visit!

5. And, finally, a tour of Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s Tate Britain show, Fly in League with the Night: https://youtu.be/6ee5gGkW7nk Here’s her Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lynette_Yiadom-Boakye I’d not heard of her before but I like the show!
