Learners often have low self-esteem and resilience to reading. Many feel that they have already 'failed'. This course explores how to develop learners' active reading skills by explicitly teaching some of the process and problem-solving strategies that proficient readers use automatically e.g. when good readers read, they consider what they are reading and how it fits with what they already know.
You will try out and evaluate strategies through which support learners to build upon the schema that they have already developed and better understand and engage with the texts they encounter.
