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

November 15 @ 1:00 pm - November 17 @ 12:45 pm


Recommended for:

This workshop is designed for teachers of the Diploma Programme (DP) language A: literature and language A: language and literature courses who are seeking to consider the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching works in translation in order to develop effective classroom practices. There is an expectation that all participants will have attended a category 1 or 2 workshop. The theoretical components may also be of interest to teachers of the Literature and performance course, but there is no explicit considerations of the parts and tasks of the interdisciplinary course as literature in translation is optional but is not a requirement.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for experienced IB educators to explore the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching literary works in translation in studies in language and literature courses. You will examine a range of texts in translation, reflect on the act of translation itself and understand how translated texts may be used in the assessment of these courses. A range of teaching and learning strategies will be explored, with focus on how translated texts connect to the concepts that underpin Studies in language and literature courses.
