This whole day workshop is the first in a two-workshop series. It introduces participants to a new research-based approach to teaching reading comprehension called Navigating Thinking.
Unique to ALL schools, Navigating Thinking is the cornerstone of our approach to developing high-achieving ‘thinking readers’. It integrates all strands of the Australian curriculum for English, and provides rich instructional maps for thinking in a wide range of genre, at multiple year levels. Navigating Thinking promotes powerful meta-cognitively focused comprehension instruction that is engaging, challenging and effective.
Workshop participants will learn about the Navigating Thinking philosophy, research base and curriculum tools used in Navigating Thinking Schools.
