    IEA English resource pack for educators

    This resource pack is based on IEA’s Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) and uses the PIRLS materials to support the best practices for teaching reading comprehension in a classroom. It accompanies the How to Help Students Develop Reading Comprehension Skills Teacher Snippet XL and book Putting PIRLS to Use in Classrooms Across the Globe, which is part of the IEA Research for Educators series.

    It contains reading passages with corresponding questions and the related scoring guide to address students’ needs in reading comprehension processes. The scoring guide provides correct answers for multiple choice questions (MC) and points to the evidence that needs to be considered in deciding about correctness of the responses to the constructed response questions (CR) with some useful examples included. The international averages displayed for each question illustrate how challenging the questions were overall for students in PIRLS 2016.

    When using the passage as an evaluation, the results should be used in a formative way for helping teachers identify and focus on the processes that students are having difficulties with.

    Teacher's handbook remedial education

    Remedial education programs provide responsive and flexible learning support for students as they continue to attend regular public-school classes. Remedial education targets students for whom the regular education system is not the best fit, providing them with content and skills needed to succeed in formal education.

    This remedial education handbook is for primary school teachers who are already working in school settings and who want to begin a remedial education program. This handbook is also useful for education personnel such as principals, administrators, and counselors, and can be used for teacher training. It was designed for teachers and education personnel working in Arabic-speaking contexts as a self-guided reference that can be used to design, implement, and improve remedial education classes. It was developed based on World Vision’s experiences facilitating a remedial education program in a specific context (Jordan). However, its contents are versatile and can be applicable in many other contexts where children live in vulnerable conditions and require academic support and protection.
