AS/A-level Spanish: Success with literature

Course summary

With literature compulsory for A-levels, this course suggests ways of tackling a range of novels, plays, short stories and poems that will enhance the breadth and depth of language study of all your AS/A-level students. The course will explore innovative approaches to the teaching of literature and help develop your confidence in delivering engaging literature lessons. The texts used on the course will be taken from the AQA set texts for the new A-level but the ideas and strategies used can be applied to any work of literature.

This course is a repeat from autumn 2019.
