16 November 2021 | 15:10 - 15:30 | English | To Make Great Leaders, We Need Great Learners…Who Love Literacy.
What’s it going to take to create some of the world’s best entrepreneurs, leaders and creators, right in the heart of the UAE? That success is born from a thirst for knowledge, which is found in nurtured understanding of reading and vocabulary. Classroom leaders and educators have a direct link to the future of their scholars, and all of them could improve the outcomes…if only they learnt to read again. So how do we help teachers teach? And how do we ensure today’s young brains really are our most resilient and ‘literacy competent’ yet? This workshop will be a practical exploration of the explicit teaching of vocabulary and reading for any classroom.
