Reading to Learn Africa Mini-Conference

2016-08-31 06:00

READING to Learn (RtL) South Africa is to host a one-day conference on Monday 3 October in Pietermaritzburg.

Reading to Learn trains teachers across all phases, learning areas and languages in the RtL methodology to enable them to develop their pupils’ abilities to independently learn from reading.

Originally developed in Australia, over the past 20 years it has spread to many different countries and is being used in South Africa, especially in the Midlands in rural and urban schools.

The programme will focus on two main areas:

• Presentations by practising RtL teachers across a range of school contexts, from urban to rural, sharing their experiences using RtL in their classroom.

• Practical workshops on different aspects of the RtL methodology to give teachers an insight into the methodology and it implementation in classrooms.
