Jane Godwin: PD sessions for teachers

Session Info:

The power of the picture book
‘A picture book is text, illustrations, total design; an item of manufacture and a commercial product; a social, cultural, historical document; and, foremost, an experience for a child. As an art form it hinges on the interdependence of pictures and words, on the simultaneous display of two facing pages, and on the drama of the turning of the page.

On its own terms its possibilities are limitless.’
American Picture Books, from Noah’s Ark to The Beast Within
Barbara Bader

A stimulating and interactive session exploring picture books from every angle – the range of books in this genre, how they’re made, what they can represent, and the many opportunities they bring to a classroom, be it with 5 year olds or 15 year olds. Drawing on her experience as both a publisher and a writer, and using examples from picture books from around the world, Jane explores the power of this art form to enlighten, entertain, inspire and educate.

Other workshops Jane can run:
Poetry workshop
Persuasive writing
Narrative writing for secondary students
A session for students studying the novel Falling from Grace

Or she can tailor a program to your needs!
