WORKSHOP 1 - VISUALIZING & INFERRING

Date:    Monday 11th April

Time:  4pm – 5.30pm

Venue: Marino Institute of Education

In this first session, participants will gain an overview of the high leverage reading strategies necessary for students to comprehend texts on a meaningful level. We’ll take a close look at two of these strategies: visualizing and inferring. Participants will learn fun and effective strategies for getting their students to visualize and make inferences as they read.

 

WORKSHOP 2 - PREDICTING & QUESTIONING

Date:    Monday 18th April

Time:  4pm – 5.30pm

During the second session, we will examine how we can teach our students to predict and ask
thoughtful questions as they read. This session will focus on how we can enable our students to be reflective readers and will explore strategies for classroom use to improve readers’ ability to predict and ask text-based questions.

 

WORKSHOP 3 - PRIOR KNOWLEDGE & MAKING CONNECTIONS

Date:    Monday 25th April

Time:  4pm – 5.30pm

Venue: Marino Institute of Education

In this session, we will look at two strategies that will ensure our students are going beyond superficial understanding of text and moving towards deep comprehension. Participants will explore engaging ways to teach your students to access prior knowledge and make connections to ensure they are reading for meaning.
