Teaching Students with Dyslexia - Blockseminar
- WS 17/18
|Teaching Students with Dyslexia - Blockseminar||2 PS/HS||
While dyslexia impacts on reading and writing skills and on general academic performance, it also affects second language learning. Language teacher training programmes rarely focus on the preparation of future language teachers for work with dyslexic students. This course aims to fill that gap. The key preliminary theoretical questions that we will be exploring on the course are:
- What is dyslexia?
- How does it impact on the learning of a second language?
- How does the orthographical transparency or opacity of a particular language compound the difficulty for both first and second language learners?
The course will then proceed to investigate different ways of identifying dyslexia, using both software and pen and paper testing, followed by insights into how to:
- Prepare an individual learning plan to address the identified specific learning differences.
- Facilitate the development of phonological and orthographical awareness.
- Meet the needs of dyslexic learners in group-class situations by employing multimodal and multisensory tasks and harnessing modern technological apps.
In addition to readings posted on Moodle, a list of the relevant literature will be provided at the beginning of the course.
