Glasshouse Christian College, QLD, Australia
We have been working with Shalene for over five years now and she has been very diligent with her implementation of our SharpReading procedures.
Her passion for this approach is quite remarkable and this transfers readily to her students' enthusiasm for reading and the results they achieve. This applies not only to her mainstream students but also "The Struggling Older Readers" that she works with.
She is now an Accredited SharpReading Trainer at Glasshouse Christian College, supporting teachers in the Year 3-6 area of the school.

Trialling It First
A small groups of teachers and students really enjoyed the initial trial so it was easy to move to a whole school approach.
SharpReading is PD that can bring different teachers together and get a common language throughout the school.
It is great to get what you want as well as a bunch of benefits that you didn't expect.
It saves time. Theoretically sound. Easy to manage. Fits well into our learning culture.
