Abstract: Advancing Reading Comprehension

By Alejandra Ottolina

We have all read or heard complaints about the poor reading comprehension standards students show in English as well as in their mother tongue. Why does this happen? What are the factors at play? The development of reading comprehension is a complex process, but no matter how hard it may be, it is essential for students to become successful and productive adults.

• What does the teaching of reading comprehension involve?

• How can we practise each component?

• What should we all bear in mind when we deal with reading comprehension?

Only when we understand the process itself and how the concepts of reader, text, and context interact to create meaning, will we be able to make our students more effective readers.

Join us! Let’s work together to improve our students’ reading comprehension.

Abstract: Assessment as a GPS: Recalculating!

Assessment has traditionally been conceived as a way to measure knowledge at one particular moment in a student’s learning path rather than as an instance for learning. Just as a GPS can drastically improve a driver’s experience, so too assessment, if used effectively, can help create active learners who can navigate their way through their learning trajectories by providing relevant information. This session will aim at providing a worthwhile experience in which teachers can critically reflect on the significance and impact of formative assessment by exploring different strategies to empower teenage students to keep track of their own learning trajectories. Join us to “recalculate” our assessment practices and walk away with practical ideas for your assessment toolbox.
