The teachers of St James’s School, Kuala Belait recently attended the first session of their two-day seminar on Reading Reconstruction conducted by Tania Jo Murphy, who is currently teaching at Sayyidina Ali Secondary School (SMSA) in Kuala Belait.
The seminar was themed “Assessment and Intervention of Reading towards Literacy Success”.
The Reading Reconstruction Programme was designed to teach Bruneian students aged three to five years old how to read. Through the workshop, the teachers learned different teaching strategies and interesting activities to improve the reading skill of their students.
During the course, Tania emphasised that teachers should individually assess their students and recognise their potential.
Furthermore, proper evaluation of the students’ performance on reading was enumerated, explained and tested during the session.
The first session ended with practical homework where teachers have to test their students using the actual reading assessment procedures.
