Course Objectives

This course will cover:
• To explore how an effective whole-school reading strategy can be developed, implemented and sustained over time.
• To explore how struggling readers can be identified and best supported.
• To explore a toolkit of practical strategies to teaching reading, which can be consistently applied across the curriculum.
• To explore ways to create a reading rich curriculum across the school.
• To explore how subject disciplinary reading can be developed.

As a 'master skill', ensuring that across the curriculum students are reading in a meaningful way with fluency, accuracy and to develop knowledge is vital in terms of reducing the gap between the disadvantaged and advantaged in life. Certainly, the ability to read well is a fundamental component in successful student outcomes in all GCSE examinations.

This course is intended for teachers responsible for leading reading across the curriculum to support the development of a rigorous reading strategy in secondary schools that will engender mastery of these skills.

A key focus in this course will be on how subject disciplinary reading can be best developed. Another important element will be how an effective supplementary tutor time programme can support students' reading development.
