Focus Education - Accelerating Progress in Reading Through Effective Teaching and Assessment - Salford

30/01/2019 09:00 - 15:00

The teaching of reading continues to be a focus for many schools with much discussion around the merits of whole class teaching or a carousel approach and how to meet the needs of pupils whilst ensuring progress towards the end of year expectations.

This course examines the process of the effective teaching of reading, including whole class reading, and how to ensure that all pupils work with their year group learning through focused scaffolding with practical examples. It also addresses the assessment of reading, looking at reading behaviours and the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to meet the end of year reading objectives. Practical approaches; observation, written work and conversations will be explored to ensure that assessment is used to inform teaching, progress and summative judgements.
