Supporting Reading - a Workshop for Teaching Assistants

Supporting Reading - a Workshop for Teaching Assistants

This interactive online workshop aims to develop Teaching Assistants’ practice in their work to support pupils to become readers. The elements of reading – word reading, fluency and comprehension – will be explained and TAs will have the opportunity to explore a variety of practical, proven approaches for supporting pupils, including those pupils who struggle with reading, in developing their strategies and skills across the elements.

The course will take the form of an interactive online workshop. You will receive in advance all the handouts and resources for you to fully participate and during the session, participation tools will be used such as practical activities, breakout groups for discussion and opportunities for questions throughout.Trainer
