Following the 2012 Scottish Summary of Literacy and Numeracy, Education Scotland produced materials within a professional learning resource to support practitioners in Listening and Talking, Reading and Writing.
They have highlighted that learners, whatever the text, will need to consciously identify and apply strategies to actively engage in the reading process. They suggest that the following are some of the skills that should be developed before, during and after reading.
One resource that they’ve linked to that develops these strategies is The Thinking Reader.
