Our SharpReading ONLINE Package includes ...
THE THEORY - the all important thinking behind our approach to reading instruction. We have some interesting ideas about teaching and learning which will give you a whole lot of clarity about what you should (or could) be doing for instructional reading.
THE PRACTICE - A chance to have a go at the routines during the workshop. Of course this majors on the normal classroom delivery, but will also include modelling just how easy it is to run guided reading via Zoom (or a similar platform).
2. SharpReading ONLiNE Training
After the start-up workshop you can continue on with developing mastery of the SharpReading routines by working through the eight units available to you in SharpReading ONLiNE.
Each unit follows this repeating pattern.
LEARNING GOALS - a statement of clear outcomes for the unit.
READ - a clear explanation of the theory or teaching pedagogy around the learning goal.
VIEW - video models of the teaching and observational practices that are the focus of the unit.
DO IT - specific guided reading tasks to practice in the classroom or online (yes we cover 'Guided Reading using Zoom')
REVIEW - come back and review what you have learnt.
Resources: The units are packed with video models, text resources, teacher scripts, planning and assessment templates. FAQs and variables are all discussed as well as a 50 page Course Book for at-your-fingertips reference on the fly in the classroom.
Endorsement: "This PD model works so well. The theory and the practice are so well explained and set out but it is having the video models to go back to ... that's the huge point of difference."
