I’m doing some reading about research into teacher “self-efficacy”, a rather nebulous and contested concept which is used by some to try to understand what makes some teachers more successful than others teachers and even to persevere and help reach students in contexts that many might give up.
Anyway, in one of the articles about T.S.E. I came across some references about strategies and devices for helping students to develop reading skills. I make no representations about the strategies, and to be honest I’m only recording them here in case I need something along these lines in the future.
