At Charleston Academy and in the Highland trial in primary schools, Speedy Readers has proven very effective for pupils with EAL who have a ‘spiky profile’ eg their Listening and Talking is stage 3 or 4, but their Reading and Writing is stage 1 or 2. Typically, this will be a pupil in P5 + who has been in UK education for more than 2 years, but who has literacy difficulties.
It is ideal for these pupils as it involves:
- reading choice
- auditory back up
For information on how to implement, please see the Highland Literay BLOG http://highlandliteracy.com/speedy-readers-the-literacy-toolbox/
You may also want to use this with younger pupils. Please get in touch for advice.
Please note: This is not recommended for pupils who are New to English
