Unlocking Understanding course
SACE Accredited course: Practical strategies for non-language teachers to improve reading comprehension
Every teacher is a language teacher.
Reading comprehension forms the foundation of learning. However, according to the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) 2016, which assessed the reading comprehension skills of fourth-grade students in South Africa, approximately 78% of South African Grade 4 learners cannot read for understanding. This is something that needs to be addressed in all subjects and not just left to those who teach Home Language.
So what can we do about it?
In this course, we will provide you with research-based, practical strategies and techniques that you can use to enhance your learners’ reading comprehension abilities in all subjects. Best of all, you can start them in any classroom from tomorrow. There is no need for a major classroom practice overhaul!
