The UK Schools Team at Cambridge University Press will be hosting a free seminar on ‘Making the most of textbooks in the English classroom’ at NATE this week.

At the event at the Hilton in Newcastle, Gateshead, the team are hosting a seminar on the value of textbooks for English teachers. The seminar will share tips and advice on supporting teachers through the curriculum changes and enhancing students’ learning, understanding and enjoyment of English. Panellists include Dr Marcello Giovanelli (series author of the Cambridge A/AS Level English), Imelda Pilgrim (series editor for Cambridge GCSE English Language), and Peter Thomas (series editor of the Cambridge GCSE English Language resources). The seminar takes place on Friday, 26 June between 16:30 – 17:30. All attendees to the seminar will also receive a free Student Book and be entered into a prize draw to win a class set of brand new student books.

Michael McGarvey, Director of UK Schools, said; ‘Our series editors will discuss how English textbooks can help support you through the curriculum changes and enhance your students’ learning, understanding and enjoyment of English. Learn expert strategies for using textbooks for planning, assessing and helping your students develop their skills to prepare for final exams.’

As well as the session, the team will be at Stand 9 showcasing their AQA-approved GCSE and A/AS Level English resources for the new 2015 specifications.
