The Science of Reading for French Immersion Teachers

This session will go into the basics for research based practices for teaching reading in a French immersion or second language context. We will look at the "Simple View of Reading", first proposed by Gough and Tunmer in 1986, and look at it's implications for teaching reading in a second language context. Next, we will discuss the skills required for skilled reading and strategies for teaching these skills. Finally, we will provide resources in order to help you get started on your Science of Reading journey.

Although this session will be geared towards French immersion teachers, it will provide many strategies for teaching reading in a second language context, relevant to teachers teaching ELL students. The session will be held in English so that it is accessible to all.
