SharpReading School-Wide

Your Next Step:  In-School Support

Please note our Special Offer for Queensland Schools in Term 1 and Western Australian Schools in Term 2, 2023.

So ... Your school has made a start with SharpReading!

Those teacher's who have done the initial training, are impressed with the impact it is having on student learning and motivation. Students are engaged, growing in confidence, taking ownership of the lesson routines and the teacher's are so relieved to have a clear scope and sequence and greatly reduced lesson preparation time. 

What is your Next Step!

NOW....we offer you In-School Support (a SharpReading Consultant in your school) to embed this approach to reading instruction across your school and future proof your PD investment.

We can achieve these two objectives simultaneously.

In-Class Coaching

As you will know, the enemies of successful School-wide PD are...

1. Teacher error -  misinterpretation of the intention of the routines (even with access to video models) and ‘get it wrong’.
2. Waning enthusiasm - other things take over, poor implementation may result in doubting the effectiveness of the approach.

THE FIX
In-class coaching with the 'expert'.In 45 minutes we can identify any issues with delivery and fix them up, provide lesson modelling, team teaching, anything your teacher needs to reignite their enthusiasm and get them on track to meeting that standard we have set which gets the very best deal for your students.

In-Class Coaching schedules a 45 minute session in each classroom where we will model, team teach, problem-solve, observe and give feedback in a VERY non threatening way so that teachers can identify their own next learning steps. ("Best PD ever").

COST: $1200 NZD / $1100 AUD per day PLUS approx $250* per day for travel and accommodation.
*Travel and accommodation costs may vary depending on your location. We have planned to be in QLD and WA for blocks of time which helps share international travel costs and make it affordable for schools.

A day includes six in-class sessions PLUS before school briefing and after school debriefs as is deemed necessary. 

PLEASE NOTE: No relief teachers required! This is a huge plus!

Train a SharpReading Coach

Develop in-school expertise to future-proof your PD investment

Identify your own SharpReading Champions within the school and get them trained to take over the In-Class Coaching.

They will develop skills for working alongside their peers and setting up a school wide plan to maintain the momentum and the integrity of the program over time.

COST:  COACH ONLiNE Course $250 NZD / $230 AUD 
Prospective Coaches need to complete this ONLiNE Course before a planned visit.
All other training costs are included in In-Class Coaching Costs!

All additional training can be run currently with the In-Class support so there is no additional cost! Your Coach- in-Training needs to be released to accompany the SharpReading Consultant during the In-Class Coaching sessions)

Don't have the budget to cover all teachers for in-school Coaching?
Book us for a minimum of 1 day, select a sample of teachers (6), and the focus can be on the Coach training. We do not guarantee that a Coach in training will be accredited after just one day, but they will be well advanced in developing the Coach skills to be able to support the rest of your staff.
