Oxford Translation Day 2019: Creative Translation in the Classroom
June 15, 2019 @ 11:30 - 13:00
Reserve your place at a free workshop for teachers at primary and secondary level, exploring the use of ‘creative translation’. As well as being a stimulating way of expanding pupils’ vocabulary and developing their linguistic flexibility, creative translation develops pupils’ critical awareness of other languages and cultures; highlights the value of knowing other languages; raises the profile, confidence and self-esteem of multilingual children; develops broad-spectrum literacy and decoding skills; promotes collaborative learning; and provides a springboard for creative writing and story-telling. This hands-on workshop will introduce participants to the principles of creative translation in the classroom through a series of interactive exercises that can be used in the classroom from KS2 onwards.
