Overview

Teaching Diverse Learners is a full-day workshop aimed at assisting teachers of years 1 and 2 to differentiate literacy instruction for the top and bottom groups.

  • strategies for problem solving words and ideas
  • strategies for promoting active involvement and improved comprehension, including peer reading (partner as tutor), literature circles, focused book discussion groups and comprehension journals.
