Name of Workshop

Discourses and debates

Who is it for

English language secondary teachers (TBC)

Brief synopsis of workshop

When we study English Language at A level we start to look at language not just as a tool for communication but as a concept and object for discussion. Language is always under discussion in the media and we are presented with popular ideas about change and variation that often clash with linguistic research. In this workshop, we’ll look at ways to engage students with debates about language and how to use language analysis tools to talk about these media debates.
