Pre-Conference Workshop with Diana Hicks: How could the use of text attack strategies scaffold learning in your school?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Target audience: Secondary subject, MFL and LI teachers

Workshop outline: The workshop will focus on the need for text attack strategies in all classrooms as a means of scaffolding students interaction with and comprehension of text in L1 and L2 (or L3). Reading efficiently is a key part of successful curriculum understanding and awareness of appropriate strategies to attack a range of text genres underpins both language development and subject understanding. Many L1 and L2 students use Stage 1 reading strategies ( developed at primary school) in Stage 2 contexts and these are reinforced by inappropriate teaching approaches.
Various strategies will be shared and discussed to demonstrate how we can move away from ‘what’ we ask students to read to ‘how’ we can help them deal with texts.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to understand:
  • the need for genre appraisal,
  • the purpose, process and outcome of reading a text
  • appropriate scaffolding for pupil success.
