Training focuses on ways of teaching modelled expressive reading, echo
reading and repeated re-reading. Teachers learn strategies for skilled
questioning, challenging text selection and modelling comprehension skills.
Training aims to support teachers to:
- Develop their understanding of the essential knowledge and skills required for pupils to become fluent readers.
- Use evidence-informed strategies to accelerate pupil progress in reading.
- Improve the reading comprehension of vulnerable pupils particularly.
