Workshop Details

Comprehension is the essence of reading and a tool for life-long learning. Most of us need to make meaning from text every single day. In doing so we use strategies without even being aware of it.

Many learners have to read challenging texts and struggle to comprehend them. Teaching them the strategies good readers use can be hugely beneficial, and can transform them from passive to active readers. 

Learning outcomes:

In this PLD Module you will learn what reading comprehension strategies you can teach, how you can teach them, and how cultural values can be integrated into this process.

You will have the opportunity to practice teaching the strategies and refine your approach. 



Ako Aotearoa ALNACC PLD Courses

Each module consists of a four-week PLD course starting with a workshop, delivered face-to-face or by video conference.

This is followed by an online community of professional learning. Participants will have the opportunity to practise and reflect on the new learning and exchange experiences and ideas with each other and the facilitator.

Participants can collect evidence of participation and engagement in their PLD Portfolio or Kete.

They can receive a digital badge, or micro-credential, for participation in each of the three components and a ‘gold badge’ if all three badges are collected.
