Seminar teaching

Activity ideas

In this part of the seminar teaching area, you will find a stimulating assortment of worked-up ideas for seminar activities. Some of these ideas require no resources other than yourself, your students and an imaginative leap or two. For others you will need lo-tech teaching aids, such as blu-tack, large sheets of paper and children's picture-books. Yet others require the preparation of fairly extensive handouts: in these cases, samples have been provided as downloadable pdf files.

These webpages have been kindly provided for the Subject Centre by Barbara Bleiman and Lucy Webster of the English and Media Centre, a not-for-profit trust which produces resources and runs training events for secondary school teachers. The activities profiled here, which have been specially tailored for use in undergraduate modules, showcase some of the creative methods currently being used in secondary English teaching.

Other ideas for designing seminars can be found in Ben Knights’ pages on structuring seminars and in our T3 database of seminar tips.’

You can browse the activities by using the list below or the 'Activity Ideas finder' on the right of your screen.
