Dyslexia and Foreign Language Teaching #FLdyslexia Week 4
I’ve just completed the final week of the FutureLearn MOOC, Dyslexia and Foreign Language Teaching. A little early but I wanted to get it done as I need to concentrate on report writing 🙁
This week focussed on phonological and orthographic awareness, skills that are needed for successful spelling, reading and comprehension. It underlined the need to move from word level to text level, and the value of shared reading, pre-reading/pre-teaching, and of constant checking of comprehension to avoid gaps in understanding being left unplugged.
Below are my sketch notes. I hope they’re useful!

Just spotted this and wish I’d seen it before! Thank you. I love your visually appealing notes and plan to share with colleagues. I am very interested in learning challenges, including Dyslexia, also in EAL and MFL. Am a veteran teacher & passinate linguist who loves learning. Would you recommend the Future Learn course? Would be delighted to hear from you (email or Twitter @cmcinswitz) thanks Claire Chalcraft
