Reading for Life one day workshop

  • Reading for Life one day workshop

    Reading Life Workshop:

    Why is it that more people can’t read and write? Why are there still so many vastly different methods of teaching literacy? Why do people still argue about it?

     

    Lyn Stone’s one day workshop, Reading for Life, examines these three questions, addressing the less evidence-supported ideas about teaching reading and writing which are still alive and well in schools all over the world. This teacher and parent workshop strives to help bridge the gap between research and practice, translating academic findings into practical suggestions and ready-to-use techniques.

     

    This course covers:

     

                 the components of literacy, including phonics, vocabulary and fluency

     

                 the history of approaches to literacy teaching and an overview of the key figures

     

                 the nature of dyslexia and how people affected by the condition can achieve literacy

     

                 the essential components of an effective literacy program with practical advice on selecting resources to get the job done well.

     

    Reading for Life helps educational practitioners make informed decisions about which teaching methods to reject and select, and empowers parents to ask the right questions of professionals and policy makers.
