Sate are delighted to announce a SAE seminar with Kenny Pieper on the 28th of September at Larbert High School.
All teachers of Literacy and English, whether working in the primary or secondary sectors, are welcome to this – the latest – of the popular series of SATE Seminars. In this session – “Books – A Passport to Everywhere” – author Kenny Pieper will discuss the importance of books in our lives, how they lift and transform us, and how they may provide the key to improved life chances for all our children. He will also discuss the strategies he has used successfully in his own classroom. There might be speed-dating!
Tickets are free to students, £10 for members of SATE/NATE and £15 for non-SATE/NATE members.
