  1. Hi All
    We are trialling some study days for English students this year and it would be great to have your feedback on whether you think this might be useful and where would be the best place to advertise it. Also if you would like to book your students or get more information then please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Many Thanks

    Day Events for English, Art and Film and Media Studies at the National Media MuseumPlease call 0844 856 3799 to book.GCSE English: Jane Eyre Tuesday 27 September 10.30 – 3pm
    This autumn sees the release of a new adaptation of this key heritage text, which is set to demonstrate the abiding appeal of this gothic-influenced work and how each successive era can stamp its own culture on a classic novel. This day, which will include a screening of Jane Eyre (2011), will also include a brief overview of the novels’ literary context and will focus on how the film has used its particular language and form to adapt the story into a different medium, comparing the new releases with existing versions. This event will be useful for any students working towards an English GCSE media assignment or studying the novels in class. Led by Rona Murray
    Cost: Students £5.50 each, teachers free A Level English: Jane Eyre
    Wednesday 28 September 10.30 – 3pmThis day is designed to support AS and A level English students, who may be studying the text in detail or as part of a synoptic assignment. Including a screening of the latest adaptation released this autumn, the focus will be on bringing wider contexts to bear on their study. By using excerpts from previous film versions, the accompanying talk will consider the literary context of the novels and the abiding appeal of their generic form and thematic preoccupations. The idea of a film adaptation will be utilised to explore how film versions can reflect back the contemporary culture of the reader and explore how responses change with changing contexts of reception.Led by Rona Murray Cost: Students £5.50 each, teachers free A Level English: Wuthering HeightsTuesday 7 February 10.30 – 3pmThis day is designed to support AS and A level English students, who may be studying the text in detail or as part of a synoptic assignment.
