Route de Collex 15, 1293 Bellevue
This practical and interactive workshop offers solutions to raising the achievement of students with age appropriate thinking but who have low prior attainment due to weak basic skills. A range of evidence based approaches will be presented which help individuals without always needing to give individual help – an important consideration when working across the range of ability and need found in most European classrooms. The importance of compensating for poor working memory will also be addressed in the form of strategies to create “memory lite” situations that accelerate reading for meaning, spelling jargon words and getting ideas down on paper. These strategies have been carefully selected to operate effectively in classrooms throughout Europe, including the second/additional language settings found in European and International-schools.
