Guided Reading for Decoding and Comprehension Strategy Instruction
What is Guided Reading?
Guided Reading is small-group reading instruction designed to provide differentiated teaching that supports students towards reading proficiency. The small group model means that the teacher can be more focused on the students specific needs, accelerating their progress.
What is SharpReading?
SharpReading is a teaching and learning framework that provides direction for teachers and equips them to be SHARP (efficient, cutting edge) in their delivery of Guided Reading. The SharpReading website provides access to quality teacher training via ONLiNE Courses plus the resources they need to make this work in the classroom.
Who is SharpReading for?
Whether you are a beginning teacher looking for a structured way to make a start, an experienced teacher looking for a more efficient process, a Literacy Support teacher looking for something for your teachers that are struggling, or a principal or School Literacy leader looking for a consistent school wide approach that gets results, you will find what you are looking for in SharpReading.
Travel restrictions have encouraged us to develop WEBINARS as an addition to our face-to-face WORKSHOPS. This also means that you can access the 'Start-Up' training for our ONLiNE courses from anywhere in the world.
The webinar format will be similar to our face-to-face workshops, lots of interaction (we are keeping webinar sizes to 10 to make sure that happens), lots of practice opportunities and the chance for your Q&A.

Our SharpReading ONLiNE Courses
"As a Curriculum leader in a variety of schools I have been working with the SharpReading program and products for a number of years. I have been really impressed with all aspects of SharpReading."
Coolum Beach Christian College, QLD
"SharpReading has been an essential part of our school reading programme for 2 years. I can’t believe how good the Year 3 and 4 students are at unpacking sentences. Their ability to really process and think about what the sentence is saying is so good!"
Spreydon School, Christchurch
"Thank you SharpReading for StoryBytes! These resources are becoming a big part of my reading programme. The stories are just the right length with lots of interesting vocabulary and ideas - my readers love them and we all look forward to a new story every week."

Hilton and Brian have been teaching and training teachers for more years than they care to remember. SharpReading is the result of countless hours of classroom teaching and years of dedication to supporting and working alongside teachers and education experts. The aim of our 'SharpReading Network' is to share core insights about successful teaching gained from working alongside you. The underlying belief is that while there are many ways to teach, in this age of information overload, we must be practical and efficient.
