About the webcast
Knowledge of language structure is innate for competent speakers. In order to understand how young children can be supported to use their language structure as a source of information, some of this innate knowledge will be brought under close examination.
Looking specifically at teaching and learning in Reading Recovery and using Literacy Lessons Designed for Individuals Part Two, examine two questions:
What do our students need to learn how to do with the knowledge of language structure they have?
What might the teaching look like in order to build on existing knowledge?
Includes downloadable handouts.
