ABOUT THE COURSE
So they’ve learnt the basics of phonics and they take home the books every night. But is practice enough? This course looks in detail at the reading strategies and habits that make a good reader, and considers what more we can do to create independent, insightful readers.
Session 1 – The reading process
in which we explore what it is that good readers do when they read, and how we can enhance the quality of the reading experience.
Session 2 – Fulfilling the National Curriculum
which takes a fresh look at the content of the new NC and considers how best to cover some of the trickier elements such as classic texts, the range of reading and reading aloud.
Session 3 – Reading non-fiction
in which we consider the reading demands of non-fiction, including book use, research, notetaking, summary and the use of information.
Session 4 – Teaching the novel
which proposes a way of taking a whole class through a whole novel
Session 5 – Taking off
why some children fail to take off in reading and what we can do to motivate them to become independent readers.
Session 6 – Preparing pupils for the reading test
in which we experience a reading test ourselves and identify constructive strategies for getting through it and attempting hard questions
in which we come back to big issues of the day
