  • Arts in Junior Cycle Workshops arrow_drop_down

    In 2014, Junior Cycle for Teachers (JCT) presented a series of professional development workshops for teachers to support engagement with the arts and learning in junior cycle. The workshops offered embody the principles and key skills which underpin the Framework for Junior Cycle and provide teachers with practical and creative methodologies to use in their classroom. This initiative is guided by the principles expressed in the Arts in Education Charter.

    These workshops embody the learning outcomes for English and provide a fresh approach to teaching drama extracts, film, Shakespeare and critical engagement with multi-modal texts. These unique workshops are co-facilitated by JCT Advisors and respected artists / arts facilitators in the world of theatre and film. They combine approaches employed by professionals working in the arts with innovative teaching and learning in junior cycle. It is hoped that these workshops will be offered again in the near future.Updates and further resources will be available at: www.artsinjuniorcycle.ie.
