Tactical Teaching Reading - Not the Reading Teacher but a Teacher of Reading

Is reading getting in the way of student achievement in your content area? Do you want activities that layer on to the texts you already use to improve reading?

 


 

Tactical Teaching Reading:

Learning to read is not over once students complete primary school. We continue to develop our reading skills well into adulthood as we engage in increasingly complex reading tasks.

Each of the three workshops in Tactical Teaching Reading addresses a different aspect of the unique challenges of supporting students to effectively comprehend texts in all learning areas.

Recommended for:

  • Crafted for middle school and secondary teachers
  • Effectively supports teachers of late primary students and adult learners to improve reading comprehension.

Tactical Teaching Reading has been matched against the Literacy and Numeracy Framework for Wales and the National Curriculum for England. 

Contact us to ask about prices for your area.

Take a Teacher Course and learn how to use the resource in your classroom, or better yet, take a Facilitator Course and learn to deliver the workshops to other teachers.

 


 

Workshop 1: How to Help Students Use Reading Processes

Better readers become better learners. This workshop explores the research on adolescent literacy and easy-to-use activities to support students in making sense of what they read in your learning area. Reading processes take place before, during and after reading. Activities in this workbook target processes to help students activate background knowledge, clarify vocabulary, monitor understanding, and process what they have read.

How to Help Students Use Reading Processes workbook contains 14 powerful and flexible activities that can be used over and over in your lessons with the texts you already use.

 


 

Workshop 2: How to Make Reading Strategies Visible

Successful readers intuitively draw upon a range of strategies such as adjusting reading rate, predicting, connecting and self-questioning when confronted by challenging texts. Research highlights that struggling readers benefit greatly from explicit teaching of reading strategies to help them understand texts. This workshop provides teachers with a range of activities to make reading strategies visible for students and unwraps the 18 universal strategies that proficient readers use.

Workshop 3: How to Build Text Form Knowledge

Adolescent students encounter an ever-growing range of increasingly complex texts. This workshop provides a range of practical activities to make it easy for you to build students' ability to pinpoint the purpose, organisation, language features and text structure of your subject area texts. Participants examine practical activities that will help students understand these different patterns within texts and thus assist comprehension, building an excellent foundation on which to create their own texts.

How to Build Text Form Knowledge workbook contains 14 practical activities that can be used over and over in your lessons with the texts you already use.

 


 

The Tactical Teaching suite:

Tactical Teaching is based on the belief that teachers need to make decisions about what to teach (the learning area), to whom (which students), and how (the most effective way) to teach. Its power comes from helping students construct their understandings through developing effective processes and strategies to self-manage their learning.

Tactical Teaching training is a whole school approach to improved literacy. It is easy to use and teachers learn how to help students hone literacy skills while invigorating classes with student-focused tasks. Participants try out at least a dozen practical activities to take straight back to the classroom.

Tactical Teaching training is used in thousands of classrooms worldwide with more than 600 teachers trained as Facilitators of Tactical Teaching.
