This short course will focus in large on the language part of reading comprehension, but because reading is such an intricate and complex phenomenon, we will also briefly look at other components needed for reading comprehension.
There are three sessions in the course.
The first session will focus on the basics of neuroscience in reading and how reading develops in the brain. This understanding will lay the foundations for the strategies taught in session two and three. These strategies are aimed at improving reading comprehension that is useful in the classroom, in small groups or individually.
Take time to make notes and think of learners you are working with throughout the course.
The course finishes off with multiple choice questions, after which you will receive your certificate.
