Heads of English: Teaching Fluency in partnership with Uncommon Schools

Home > Heads of English: Teaching Fluency in partnership with Uncommon Schools

A student’s ability to read and comprehend underpins their ability to access and excel in all other content areas. In this session, experts from Uncommon Schools will share their expertise in how to teach reading.


The session will offer practical, take away examples that you can take back to your department to use to support students in developing their fluency. We will look at examples of effective practice, tried and tested methods and be given some take away resources to use with your teams. The course will allow time to share good practice with others and learn from global leaders in teaching English. Please take advantage of both places by bringing a colleague to the virtual event (they will need to join on their own device).
