Description

This course focuses on comprehension teaching in the secondary classroom.

This workshop provides participants with:

• a knowledge of the skills employed by successful readers,
• an explicit, transferable routine for comprehension instruction, that empowers students and simplifies the work of teachers
• classroom strategies to enable students to be active in their reading and increase engagement in their learning.

Whether working one-to-one, in small groups, or with the whole class, this approach to reading comprehension instruction is simple and effective. Extensive research and classroom trials support its effectiveness as a successful teaching approach that improves reading engagement and achievement.

The course will focus on the Sharp Reading Stage 3 Comprehension Strategy Instruction routine that focuses on constructing meaning at the sentence level. Following that will be a focus on stage 5 of the Sharp Reading progression that moves students from constructing meaning to text analysis at the paragraph and whole text level. 

  Resources:
• 12 months of online tutorials valued at $99 NZ 
• Twelve months of small step, at-your-own pace learning with weekly tutorials, video modelling and supporting 

TARGET AUDIENCE:
Secondary Teachers, Support Teachers and Teacher Assistants, Principals and Literacy Leaders
