The next step is the transference of the skills you have gained into your school situation. This is done working alongside a SharpReading Consultant as they provide in-class support to teachers. The transference occurs through a gradual release of responsibility in these support situations.
Step 1. Observing 'live' support sessions being run by a SharpReading Director.
Step 2. Taking part in Shared responsibility for the 'live' support sessions.
Step 3. Taking full responsibility for the support sessions (SharpReading Director observes)
The final step is to set up the School Plan for ongoing teacher training, classroom monitoring and teacher support. We have a well established template for this and your SharpReading Consultant will guide you through this.
The Coach is NOT a SharpReading trainer
We do not recommend that the Coach undertakes the training of teachers new to SharpReading. This is very time consuming for the coach and can often result in a watered down transfer of the teaching purposes and the skills required. New teachers should attend a Start-Up Webinar and then the Coach can guided them through the ONLiNE Course, providing feedback and support as is deemed necessary.
Contact us for a quote for Part 2 of this training. Note that your staff receive personalised in-class support during this process as well as providing the opportunity for the practical training of your coaches. We plan to see 6-7 teachers per day (45 minute sessions per teacher) which will give you an idea of the time requirement for your school.
