About Jennifer Webb (FunkyPedagogy)

I am a teacher, leader, author, blogger and speaker. I am currently Assistant Principal: Teaching, Learning and Staff Development at Co-op Academy Leeds, and have worked at a number of other schools in West Yorkshire, as a Head of English, an AST and a Lead Practitioner. I am the author of the best selling book, ‘How to Teach English Literature: Overcoming Cultural Poverty’ (2019) and ‘Teach Like a Writer’ (2020), both available on Amazon.

I deliver regular online CPD to hundreds of teachers every month and raise funds for a number of charities through ticket sales.

I am privileged to work with a highly talented and dynamic team, learning that leadership is hard but rewarding, and that mistakes are gold dust if you embrace them.

I’m mum to two beautiful little boys; the most important and challenging job and learning experience in the world!

I blog in order to develop myself, reflect on my experiences and share good practice.

    1. Thanks for this. I wasn’t aware. I would, however, say that the truth or falsehood of the book doesn’t really affect the text as having value as a literary study.

      That notwithstanding, I will not recommend that anyone buys it in future!

  1. Dear Jennifer Webb,

    My name is Mark Evans and i am an Assistant Librarian at the National
    Library of Wales in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, Wales, UK.

    I am currently cataloguing a book entitled “How to Teach English Literature : Overcoming Cultural Poverty”.

    To assist us with our author catalogue would it be possible for you to send us an e-mail address so we can send a author enquiry form to you via an attachment?

    Many thanks in advance for your assistance.
