Course content

  • This comprehensive, practical and interactive course explores the full range of reading skills. It addresses knowledge-based and skills-based perspectives and proposes pedagogical practices which develop skills in rich and purposeful contexts. The content draws on a two-year research project managed by Just Imagine and funded by the DfE and London School Excellence Fund.  It is informed by work undertaken for Guiding Readers - Layers of Meaning, winner of the UKLA Academic Book of the Year 2017 (Wayne Tennent, David Reedy, Angela Hobsbaum and Nikki Gamble). Areas of focus:
  • Understanding comprehension and inference
  • Selecting texts and mapping the potential of the text
  • The importance of discussion and dialogue
  • The most effective evidence-based strategies including reciprocal reading strategies, visualisation, use of graphic organisers, text marking, think aloud,
  • authentic questioning and other metacognitive strategies
  • Robust vocabulary instruction
  • Comprehending fiction, non-fiction and poetry
  • Teacher assessment
  • Auditing and action planning

This is day 2 of our comprehension course and the focus is a closer look at inference

Day 3 is the 14th June and the focus is vocabulary development for reading comprehension
