What if they can’t read? Help Struggling Readers in your HPE classroom

Who is this workshop designed for?

Years 7-9 HPE Teachers and HODs


What is this workshop about?

How can we support struggling readers, including EALD students, to process print quickly and easily? How can we devise ways for our students to approach reading as an active problem-solving process? 

Fluency is needed for successful reading at all levels of learning, and particularly so in Years 7-9.

Let us help you to motivate your students to read challenging texts and persevere in their efforts to make meaning. Develop fluent readers in your class through modelling, guidance and independent activity in the Middle Years and beyond. 

In this workshop participants will:

  • Create ways to actively support struggling readers to access, appreciate and enjoy the HPE language, particularly whose from EALD backgrounds
  • Develop ways to engage with increasingly challenging,  complex and informative written and multimodal texts for HPE assessment and reading development
  • Power up student achievement by integrating fluency practice into HPE class reading to enhance engagement
  • Work with a range of specific HPE texts you bring along, such as media specific texts on mental health and wellbeing; physical activity and those texts which evaluate skills and strategies useful in HPE discussions, theory and practical work

Take Aways:

  • Copies of Thinking Tools designed to engage and motivate adolescents to read 
  • Examples of Powerful Practices you can use in your classroom straight away to encourage student interaction, talk and discussion about what they are reading
