Are you concerned about students in your class who can decode but have little or no understanding of what they have read?  Current research indicates that we should be explicitly teaching reading comprehension strategies to students. This workshop takes this research and translates it into classroom practice and is based on Sheena’s experience of teaching strategies in a real classroom. 

The workshop will also cover:

• Current reading comprehension research
• Clarification of the strategies
• The researched model for introducing and teaching strategies
• Student activities that support strategy teaching
• Practical examples of recording on-going learning
• Practical vocabulary learning ideas
