Reflective Reading

(formerly known as Muckle Reading) 

Created specifically for Scotland, Reflective Reading is a methodology that can be used from Primary 1 to Primary 7.

This exciting approach will:

  • improve literacy standards, reading attainment and motivation in reading for all
  • put the magic back into reading through fun, engaging ideas and activities for the teaching of reading                       
  • create life-long readers with good reading habits, who enjoy and appreciate text in all its forms

Designed to be the 'next steps' for reading in Scotland, Reflective Reading responds to the aims and purposes of Curriculum for Excellence, including the Experiences and Outcomes and the 7 Principles. Child Friendly Reading Assessments will also generate and encourage a learning dialogue about reading to support Assessment is for Learning. 

In addition, a new taxonomy for reading has been created to ensure that higher order thinking skills are embedded within the teaching of reading. Teachers and children will enjoy using the Comprehension Compass, creating Task Maps and completing Textplorers activities.

When used alongside Ros. Wilson's Big Writing*, Reflective Reading offers a coherent, full-week solution to literacy in the classroom.
