On October, 30 — November, 3, 2012 the British Council, Russia hosted the international BritLit project for the third time. I had an opportunity to participate in it as a material-developer for university level students. Like at the previous sessions[1], our trainer was Alan Pulverness[2] who coordinated the working process of school and university teachers in creating BritLit kits.

BritLit resource kits contain a text and downloadable materials to help teachers using literature in the English language classroom. The materials are created by material-writers from all over the world and it’s a pleasure to mention that Russia is now among the participants.

Jackie Kay’s story My Daughter, The Fox is the first in a series of four kits written by school and university teachers from Russia, under the guidance of Alan Pulverness and co-ordinated by the British Council, Russia. This collaborative project was the direct result of a course run by NILE (Norwich Institute of Language Education) in 2011 in which two of the Russian teachers were enrolled and which Alan taught. The teachers involved in the writing of the kit based on My Daughter, The Fox were:

Ekaterina Toroptseva, Mikhail Mamaev, Yulia Klimenova, Nina Skitina, and Ekaterina Mikhailovskaya.

The kit may be found here:
