Teaching pupils to visualise as they read aids their ability to recall key information and ideas from texts in greater detail.
Very few people suffer from aphantasia, a condition in which a person is unable to visualise mental images. Most pupils in our schools are able to see key mental images in their heads.
Through observing drawings and asking key questions we can begin to understand how the process information and make sense of text.
The course will take delegates through how to assess pupils' visualisation skills, teach key skills and support pupils to independently visualise, in order to better comprehend what has been read. This course is suitable for teachers of Key Stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2 classes, as well as subject leaders.
