World of the Hero: A Workshop for Classical Civilisation A Level School Teachers

Loading Events

Join King’s College, London for the Department of Classics’ annual teacher’s workshop, this year focussing on the epics for the ‘World of the Hero’ element of the Classical Civilisation A level.

This one-day event consists of three lectures from King’s academics, each devoted to one of the epic poems included in the A level specification. A roundtable discussion at the end of the day will offer a chance for participants to workshop challenges and strategies in teaching this component successfully. Lunch is complimentary and will include the opportunity to meet the graduating cohort of King’s PGCE students (Latin with Classics).
