Plan for SharpReading School-Wide in 2021

We have School-Wide Systems to make sure SharpReading's approach to Guided Reading works for your school.
Bringing about school wide change to the teaching culture requires a clear plan of attack, a good dose of determination to consolidate a new approach, and leaders and drivers within the school to push it forward. 

Testimonials from SharpReading Schools

STEP 1: TOD Start-Up Workshops or Webinar

Are you ready to make a start? 
Book a Start-Up Teacher Only Day. We will come to your school and inspire, enthuse and teach our guided reading routines so that everyone can make a start the very next day - NE to Year 8 (NZ) or Prep-Year 6 (AU). We will get you started on the ONLiNE course and provide guidelines to make sure you get the best out of this ongoing training.

We also offer a series of Start-Up Webinars where current travel restrictions mean we are unable to travel to your school for face-to-face workshops. 

STEP 2: Complete ONLiNE Courses

We are always there for you.
The workshop provides an introduction to the new learning, enough for the teacher to make a start in their classroom the next day.

The ONLiNE Course provides eight carefully structured units to help teachers consolidate the new skills and achieve teacher competence and accreditation as a SharpReading teacher. Each teacher has access to their own personalised online course for 12 months.

STEP 3: In-School Support

Get us into your school! 
The most significant impact we can have is personal one-on-one support for your teachers with the 'experts'.

Schedule two visits to your school  (for example, the first after 4-6 weeks, the second 10-15 weeks later). In the classroom we will model, team teach, observe and give feedback in a VERY non threatening way so that teachers can identify their own next learning steps. ("Best PD ever") 

STEP 4: Train the Trainer (the 2nd year)

Develop in-school expertise to become independent.
The second year of implementation revolves around identifying SharpReading 'Champions' within the school who can be trained to become in-school trainers. They develop skills for working alongside their peers as coaches and set up a school wide plan.

This enables the school to maintain the momentum and the integrity of the programme over time.
