Introduce SharpReading School-Wide

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. 

STEP 1: A SharpReading Trial

Run a trial in your school
Establish some credibility for the programme in your school (teacher and student enthusiasm will be very evident) before committing everyone to the implementation. Sign up several teachers to the course you are interested in to find out whether this is what you need. Establish some personal interaction with us during the start-up webinars and discover the impact of the ONLiNE course.

STEP 2: TOD Start-Up Workshops

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.

STEP 3: 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. 


The costs for all of this is included in the TOD Workshop prices.
No extra charge.

STEP 4: 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  (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") 


Costs available on request.

Budget for two observations per teacher over twelve months

STEP 5: Train the Trainer

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