Event code SCH 22/766 
Event description In this TEP Talk we will offer thoughts on the following:
What do we mean by ‘progression’ in reading comprehension?
What are the key sticking points in reading comprehension?
The relationship between word-reading, fluency and understanding.
Making sure more reading happens.

Lindsay Pickton has been a successful primary education advisor and author for over 20 years, specialising in practical, active approaches to primary English and healthy attitudes to learning. He is passionate about giving children both the skills and the desire to read avidly, for pleasure and purpose.
