A level Literature Innovative Learning

Years 12 and 13 A level Literature students are using technology skills developed during lockdown to enhance their study of The Kite Runner through collaborative learning. Both classes have a lot to offer each other by way of discussion and debate around themes in this engaging and challenging novel.  However, we cannot all come together as the boys are in different year group bubbles.

To overcome this, the boys suggested delivering presentations live during lesson time via Microsoft Teams with discussion and questions to follow in the same way. Topics included violence in the novel, the presentation of male friendship and the complex concept of the persistence of the past. Learning was enriched through this innovative approach and it is definitely something we will look to try again going forward.
