About the Event
Two whole-day sessions. Timings:
9:00 a.m. — 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 — 4:30 p.m. British Summer Time
10:00 — 13:30 and 14:30 — 17:30 Central European Time
This workshop provides Primary Teachers (KS1 and first year KS2) with unique and innovative strategies for improving reading instruction and classroom management, and equips young learners with proven lifelong skills in "how to learn".
- Theory and Reasoning for each Strategy
- Classroom implementation suggestions
- Supervised hands-on practice at each Strategy
- Q&A and discussion about each Strategy
Though compatible with phonic teaching, these strategies provide the fundamental building blocks for reading success via a unique non-phonic or pre-phonic approach. Research suggests that the Davis Learning Strategies promote the able, gifted and talented while reducing or eliminating the onset of reading difficulties for at-risk learners.
Workshop Presenter: Priti Venkatesan
Priti heads up the Heartful Kids-Indigo Unit of Lalaji Memorial Omega International Schools (LMOIS) in Chennai (INDIA) and was licensed as a Davis® Dyslexia Program Facilitator in 2014. She founded the “Indigo” unit in the school to support the learning of struggling learners and those with SpLD using Davis Learning Strategies. Since then, the school has successfully trained more than 800 students in the art of learning independently.
In 2006, Priti gave up her successful career in the corporate sector to follow her passion for working with children. Apart from being a Davis Facilitator, she is also a licensed Neuro-linguistic Program Practitioner.
She has trained almost 150 teachers in India and abroad in Davis Learning Strategies and mentored them in taking these strategies into the classrooms. Her areas of expertise include curriculum design, assessments to assess the learning issues in children, and teacher training. She believes that every child can learn and optimize their potential if they are provided a loving, nurturing learning environment in which their learning needs are met.
