Urgent annoucement

There will be no class next week (Wednesday 28th March) due to strike action over pensions. “The strike is in protest against changes to the Teachers’ Pension Scheme (TPS), which UCU says will see greater contributions from pension scheme members in exchange for reduced benefits.”

 

Please use the time to conduct independent study and update your blogs.

Week 8 – some material

Here’s a link to the film Requiem for Detroit¬†which might be intersting to watch in the context of Tim’s rousing call for change on Tuesday!

 

Also find links to the Chrysler commercials with Clint Eastwood and Eminem. Watch and think Рthe USA at a crossroads? Or sentimental spectacle?

 

Looking forward to reading more of your blogs soon!
