Activity

Locally: Workshop conducted 10 October 2016 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.at Avondale School.

This workshop focused on teaching across the primary helping struggling readers. The typical skills of a good reader were first identified and then the group discussed why some children do not learn to read. Each reading stage was defined, contextualised and specific teaching strategies were presented. Particular attention was given to developing vocabulary, comprehension and fluency as those were the areas that these teachers identified as areas they needed help.
