Improving reading comprehension and enjoyment in schools.
Around 10% of pupils in Primary schools who decode adequately seem to experience problems understanding and enjoying texts they read. This has a significant and detrimental impact on attainment in all subjects.
This one day course contains an engaging and lively outline of the theory and practice in reading comprehension. It uses presentation, DVD clips and practical activities to try out and take away.
This course outlines:
• Some of the barriers pupils can experience when reading texts
• A range of strengths and weaknesses pupils show ( using DVD clips)
• How a group intervention involving 20 lessons can help to recalibrate the way pupils read-participants try it out as students
• A range of effective classroom strategies in KS1-2
• What support students sometimes need in order to be able to read information texts effectively and maximise attainment and confidence
