Symposium: Poetry & song lyrics

The event “From Poetry to Song Lyrics: Analysing and Teaching Verse” will take place on two days (February 4-5, 2022) combining a theme day aimed at English teachers at secondary schools with a symposium focusing on the academic exchange between researchers and (teacher) educators interested in poetry and songs. The lecture by Amos Paran (with generous support from WegE) is the final part of the theme day and introduces the symposium. We will explore fundamental aspects related to the teaching and learning of (performed) poetry and song lyrics.

Format: The event will take place online (Zoom link); partly hybrid for presenters depending on pandemic circumstances. Teachers in Bavaria can register for the theme day online (see poster). The symposium will start with Amos Paran’s lecture on Friday, 4. February at 2:00pm.
