Reading Comprehension Skills workshops

I teach young people practical strategies they can use to help them become better readers. We use reading material based on the All Blacks as a way to engage the students. We can also use different reading contexts.

Reading skills learned include:

  • pre-reading strategies that help warm up our brains before reading
  • strategies that help us understand what we are reading as we read, including what to do if we get stuck
  • post-reading strategies that help us retain information we’ve read and reflect on the reading experience

“I really enjoyed your reading workshop – it gave me lots of ideas on engaging boys in reading particularly. I have shared with a number of teachers who have been excited with the material they have now found online. The students I spoke to after the workshop also were inspired to find out more about sports people. I think your books are particularly relevant for using sport as a context for reading. Thanks again for such good sessions – I felt privileged to be part of them.”
