This workshop will focus on the important components of reading comprehension and how to teach them: deep vocabulary knowledge, inference making, comprehension monitoring and text structure understanding.

The presenters are Professors Jane Oakhill (University of Sussex, UK) and Carsten Elbro (University of Copenhagen, Denmark). They are leading researchers in their field, and have both extensive experience with research into and teaching of reading comprehension. Their book (co-authored with Kate Cain) of the same title as the workshop has been translated into several languages.

The workshop is offered by the Australian Centre for the Advancement of Literacy and SPELD NSW.
