For teachers teaching at young learners
The explicit teaching of strategies that will enable students to develop their confidence as critical readers is of vital importance. Strategies are plans that we use and apply when hearing a text that is read aloud or when reading independently. Strategies are complex procedures that provide an approach for completing a task. To use strategies effectively, children need to develop an awareness and understanding of the process, and then practice using the strategies with teacher assistance until they internalize the strategy and can master its application in reading. Students who are strategic have tools that allow them to learn independently. What is more, strategic students learn to trust their own perceptions and to evaluate the quality of their responses and the extent to which they have understood something. Comprehension requires a full understanding of text structures, literary analysis skills, genre characteristics and awareness of text structures.
In this presentation we will explore useful strategies that will empower students to tackle reading tasks.
