Language A: Exploring literature in translation – DP – Category 3

November 15 @ 8:00 am - November 17 @ 5:00 pm


Recommended for:

Literature course teachers in the studies in language and literature group who are seeking to consider the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching works in translation to develop effective classroom practices. All participants should have attended a category 1 or 2 workshop and have at least two years of experience teaching studies in language and literature courses. The theoretical components may also be of interest to teachers of the literature and performance course, but as there is no explicit literature in translation requirement in the guide, the workshop will be of less relevance to teachers of this course.


The workshop will focus on a selection of appropriate texts from the Prescribed literature in translation list (February 2011; first examinations 2013); the appropriate ways of studying the texts and following the required stages leading to the production of the assessment component, the literature in translation essay; and the ways in which the assessment essay can be approached, with evaluation of some sample scripts. Attention will also be given to the possible inclusion of literature in translation part 4


Category 3

Choose category 3 workshops to go more deeply into areas you enjoy and to deepen your understanding and mastery of a particular area or subject. Note: Teachers and other school leaders who do not teach in an IB World School but wish to sample IB learning may choose to participate in many of our workshops. Please refer to the “Recommended for” information in each workshop description.
