Link to this term’s CPD focus – Reading for Understanding
As students ease back into reading habits, take time to re-programme how they tackle challenging texts. Encourage them to be independent and inquisitive readers.
Remember Reciprocal Reading (slide below)? JGA delivered a Top Tip back in January sharing how he had used this in his English lesson. This strategy is relevant to ALL subject areas, even if your subject only requires students to consider the ‘clarify’ quadrant.
This slide is saved in the WLD Planning Template saved in Teams and these questions provide a useful way in to a text.
The Remote Learning Policy remains unchanged from July. Please provide tweaks or amendments to RLO asap if needed.
The English and Computing Departments will be sharing Top Tips this week. Many thanks.
JMJ has created this helpful guide to Live Teaching having worked out the process that works best. Guide attached. This is saved into Teams, here. A limited number will be printed and quarantined and stored in repro if you would like to collect later next week. I have had them laminated so that you can refer to them.
