Young Critics

Facilitators: Anna Galligan and Alan King (National Association for Youth Drama/NAYD) and Junior Cycle for Teachers

Prepare your students to engage critically with a live theatre performance as a ‘multi-modal’ text. Through observation exercises, research and discussion, equip your students with the skills to describe, analyse and form their own judgement of live theatre, and share their personal response with others. The workshop draws on the National Association for Youth Drama (NAYD) Young Critics programme. It focuses on developing the students’ critical, observational, research, communication and collaboration skills. It encourages students to find their personal voice and express their opinion in an informed and articulate fashion. It develops not only their use of critical language but also their ability to communicate it in a mature and respectful manner.

Film in Focus

Facilitators: Alicia McGivern (Irish Film Institute) and Junior Cycle for Teachers

The inclusion of film on the prescribed list of texts is an exciting development in Junior Cycle. This workshop will assist you to build on your students’ film and media literacy skills in a critical and active English classroom. Teachers will have an opportunity to view excerpts from the prescribed list of films, and to explore the language of film as they assist students in developing their personal response to these texts. Collaborative activities will be used to explore film as a ‘multi-modal’ text, and to analyse scenes, themes, characters, and genres.
