Aberdeen City will be hosting two half day training sessions with Anne Glennie, founder of the Learning Zoo. Anne will highlight Reflective Reading (previously known as Muckle Reading).
Created specifically for Scotland, Reflective Reading is a methodology that can be used from Primary 1 to Primary 7.
Designed to be the ‘next steps’ for reading in Scotland, Reflective Reading responds to the aims and purposes of Curriculum for Excellence, including the Experiences and Outcomes and the 7 Principles. Child Friendly Reading Assessments will also generate and encourage a learning dialogue about reading to support Assessment is for Learning.
In addition, a new taxonomy for reading has been created to ensure that higher order thinking skills are embedded within the teaching of reading. Teachers and children will enjoy using the Comprehension Compass, creating Task Maps and completing Textplorers activities.
These sessions have been designed for primary literacy co-ordinators and attendance on both days is required. Anne will present on the 2nd September and the 3rd September in the Northern Lights Ballroom in the Beach Ballroom. The events will run from 1pm – 4pm on both days.
