Event details: 2017 VATE/NGV Introducing Literary Perspectives through the NGV collection 2

Bookings close:

A professional learning day for VCE Literature teachers at the National Gallery of Victoria.

NGV in collaboration with VATE have designed a new program to introduce VCE Literature students to Literary Perspectives through works of art in the NGV Collection. Analysing literary criticism or reading a text through a different lens can be a challenging and daunting way to begin; students often find it more accessible and tangible to do this visually. Art invites the sorts of analytical and critical thinking skills that are crucial to close reading. Students will learn how to identify and evaluate the different perspectives adopted in literary criticism and develop transferable skills that will help them negotiate theory in the classroom.

Please book by Friday 29 July, limited places.

Date: Friday 4 August

Venue: National Gallery of Victoria


The day will consist of
• Overview of the student program and accompanying
online resource
• Gallery session
• Workshop on teaching literary criticism through
pop-culture in the classroom.
