Course Code: YF22RE11

Availability: Enrolment is closed

The Additional Qualification Course: Reading Part 1 enables you to develop a comprehensive literacy program to ensure students achieve full potential as fluent readers who comprehend what they read and can apply and communicate their knowledge and skills in new and varied contexts. You will develop a repertoire of practical strategies to meet the reading-comprehension and application needs of students in primary, junior, intermediate and secondary classrooms. Reading Part 1 focuses on ways of supporting your students through questioning, critical appreciation of perspective, and the detection of bias in text.

Through reading instruction, you will work with the most powerful tool learners have for developing ideas and insights, for giving shape to their experiences, and for making sense of their world and their possibilities in it: Language. To support effective language use and development within and beyond the course, you will also explore assessment tools for determining reading levels, strategies for reading improvement, structures for effective classroom implementation, and resources appropriate for addressing the strengths and needs of all readers.
