Enriching English is a programme that was developed by Julie Prendiville, a teacher from Kerry working in Kilkenny. Enriching English links reading, writing and oral language, leading to a greater degree of comprehension for the child. Minimal resources are required to implement this strategy, which is referred to as “tagging”. Enriching English allows children to develop independent thinking, self-assess and express opinions confidently in a fun and enjoyable way. The children focus on developing their abilities and potential as critical thinkers, teachers and authors. In the videos and tutoring provided within the course you will be given a structured ten week step by step guide on how to implement the strategies in the programme.
"What a course! I have done many courses and this was hands down the most enjoyable and I felt I got the most out of it. The course is well laid out and easy to follow. The Enriching English programme is exactly what is needed in Irish classrooms. A simple, to the point, easy to use programme that uses very little resources and can be adapted to any piece of reading or topic that the teacher chooses. It is easy to envisage this programme being used in the classroom and it would make planning and assessing much easier for the teacher. The fact that it can be tied in with and lends itself very well to the new primary language curriculum is also a big bonus. I am delighted that I chose to do this course and I am grateful for all of the practical skills and ideas I have learned."
"Thank you for providing such an insightful and informative course. It has been thoroughly enjoyable and I can’t wait to implement it in the classroom in both English and then in Gaeilge. The best course yet, well done!"
