This event is now available on request for groups of any size.

60 minutes

Overview:

Many schools end up pointing at trips to the theatre and the art gallery, or playing classical music in assemblies, and calling it 'cultural capital' without any understanding of the conceptual framework behind the idea.

But it is possible to make a number of adaptations to the curriculum that will allow schools to approach things in a more meaningful way.

In this challenging follow-up to his initial introduction to cultural capital, long-time Associate Phil Beadle looks at how to amend the teaching of arts and humanities to reflect the idea of cultural capital in a more educated, cohesive and balanced manner.

In this way, schools can not only tick the Ofsted box, but also actually deliver an experience of genuine benefit to children and young people.  

Key Takeaways:

  • Why 'legitimate' culture considers form more important than function
  • The soft skills of embodied cultural capital - manners, deportment and diction
  • What literature should they read?
  • The appropriate balance between 'high' and 'pop' culture
  • Which sports provide the most cultural capital?

This session is suitable for all teachers at KS3 and KS4 and post-16 and you do not need to have taken part in Phil's first webinar on the topic.

*Because the 'one milkshake, six straws' approach is not cool, please e-mail learn@independentthinking.co.uk if you want to use this for staff training and need to purchase more than one ticket. We'll do you a deal that makes sure everyone is happy. Thanks.
